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.
