The latest Gallup tracking poll finds Mitt Romney leading Barack Obama by one point, down from the five-point lead Romney had on October 29.
Gallup editor-in-chief Frank Newport released the results early to Bloomberg Businessweek, telling them “it’s tied today at 1 o’clock."
According to the poll, Romney is leading Obama 49-48 percent among national likely voters, within the margin of error. In the last poll, before Hurricane Sandy, Romney was leading 51 -46 percent.
