Is the end of our national tragedy near?
Mitt Romney took the lead today in the final Rasmussen poll before election day.
Romney leads President Obama by one point, 49-48.
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Monday shows Mitt Romney attracting support from 49% of voters nationwide, while President Obama earns the vote from 48%. Two percent (1%) prefer some other candidate, and one percent (1%) remains undecided.
Rasmussen Reports will conduct our final tracking poll tonight and release the results early Tuesday morning. Later today, we will issue our final swing state polls including Ohio, Virginia and New Hampshire.
Since mid-September, after the convention bounces faded, the candidates have generally been within three points of each other on a daily basis. Heading into the first presidential debate, Obama had a slight edge. After that debate, Romney had the advantage. For a few days in late October, Romney reached the 50% level of support and opened a modest lead. But the candidates have been tied or within two points for each other for the past eight days.
Now, it is time for all of us to get out and vote.
As Mitt Romney says – Vote for love of country.
UPDATE: Romney leads in the Gallup Daily Poll today too, 49-48.
