A new poll conducted by PEW and released yesterday, shows President Obama ahead of Gov. Mitt Romney 48 percent to 45 percent among likely voters. Romney led in the same poll 49-45 after the same poll was conducted of likely voters from Oct. 4-7. Romney and Obama were tied at 47 percent after the PEW conducted polling from Oct. 24-28.
President Obama would appear to be peaking at the right time after the crisis of Hurricane Sandy created a situation where he had to perform in a crisis. Last week, Republican New Jersey Chris Christie and President Obama were seen working together in the crisis in a bipartisan fashion that is rare in today’s politics, even at a time of crisis.
Other polls show a the race for the presidency will be close. NBC News shows President Obama up by only one percentage point and within the margin or error at 48-47 while ABC News and Rasmussen show the race tied 48-48.
