Mitt Romney and President Obama will head into the final Presidential Debate tied at 47 percent in the polls.
A new NBC/Wall Street Journal poll released Sunday has the two candidates tied at 47%. The poll was conducted after the second Presidential debate. Romney had a small lead, according to the poll, in “battleground” states while Obama had a lead among women voters.
Several polls have been released in the last week and the picture varies greatly from poll to poll. A Gallup poll released earlier this week had Romney up 6 points while others showed Obama holding onto a slight lead.
Obama’s campaign adviser David Axelrod said that the presidential polls have been “all over the map.” Axelrod said that he was more concerned with early voting numbers.
“If you look at the early voting that’s going on around the country, it’s very robust and its very favorable to us. And we think that’s a better indicator than these public polls, which are frankly all over the, all over the map.”
The Republicans, however, are looking at the polls as a sign of momentum heading into the election. Romney saw a big boost in the polls after the first debate and he’s hoping to add more momentum after the final debate tomorrow night.
Ohio Senator Rob Portman said:
“I like what I see because the trend is in our direction … that’s where you want to be at this point in the campaign.”
Do you think the 2012 Presidential race will be close?
