Romney Leads First Gallup Tracking Poll For General Election
We have the first release of the new Gallup daily tracking poll for the Barack Obama/Mitt Romney General Election campaign and it shows Mitt Romney leading Barack Obama by 2%.
PRESIDENT – NATIONAL (Gallup Tracking)
Mitt Romney (R) 47%
Barack Obama (D-inc) 45%
This edition of the poll was done April 11-15. It is somewhat refreshing to now have the Republican primary and not have to keep typing the names Rick Santorum, Newt Gingrich, or Ron Paul every day. Coupled with Fox News’ poll, this is now a second straight poll to show Romney leading Obama. Of course, we always have CNN to give Barack Obama a poll showing him ahead instead.
PRESIDENT – NATIONAL (CNN/ORC)
Barack Obama (D-inc) 52%
Mitt Romney (R) 43%
This poll was done April 13-15 among 910 registered voters.
