President Obama pulled ahead to a 3-point lead over Mitt Romney in the latest Gallup daily tracking poll and now leads 48 per cent to 45 per cent. Romney actually dropped a point from Monday’s poll, boosting Obama’s lead from 2 points to 3 points.
Meanwhile, Obama’s approval rating dropped down to an even 50 per cent, which is still at the “safe” level for re-election.
The lead mirrors Obama’s 3-point advantage on Sept. 16, when he was in the midst of a convention-bounce fade.
