Description

"Mitt Romney has a 7-point lead over President Obama among likely voters, according to Gallup’s latest daily tracking poll. Romney takes 52 percent support to 45 percent for Obama, and also leads 48 percent to 47 among registered voters. The survey is a rolling seven-day average through Oct. 17, so it includes one day of polling data since Tuesday night's debate in New York state. Gallup only began tracking likely voters earlier this month. The 7-point margin is Romney’s biggest lead yet in the survey and comes less than three weeks before the election. Democrats are hopeful Obama’s forceful performance in the debate earlier this week will be enough to blunt Romney’s momentum. The first debate between the two presidential contenders on Oct. 3 significantly altered the race's momentum and propelled Romney to his first national leads of the election cycle."
