President Barack Obama has opened up his biggest lead over Mitt Romney in Gallup’s daily tracking since April. He’s now up 48 per cent to 43 per cent. Here’s a look:
Obama has had five-point leads in two of the last four Gallup tracking periods, which span seven-day averages. That’s his most significant margin since April, when he held seven-point leads over Romney for two reporting periods.
His job approval rating saw a slight bump, from 46 per cent to 47 per cent. Gallup notes an interesting point about that 47 per cent mark: He’s exactly at the point where President George W. Bush was at this point in July 2004.
