Latest Poll Has Presidential Race Tied


The latest poll from the Washington Post and the ABC shows the race is literally tied. The poll gives both candidates 46%. The difference is, of course, within the poll’s margin of error. The poll also shows that Mitt Romney has an enthusiasm gap. Only 37% of Romney supports say their vote is in support of Romney, while nearly six-in-ten say their vote is in opposition to President Obama. However, three quarters of Obama supporters say their vote is in support of him, while 23% say their vote is to oppose Romney. Another poll from Gallup ties both candidates at 47%. While most expect the popular vote, the electoral college is not expected to be close. Many analysts say President Obama will win with close to or over 300 electoral votes. A candidate needs 270 electoral votes to win.
