For the third straight day, President Barack Obama held onto a big 6-point advantage over Mitt Romney in the Gallup daily tracking poll. On Wednesday, Obama jumped to the 6-point lead he holds now in the Gallup poll after holding a 3-point lead on Tuesday.

Obama’s approval rating also stayed at 50 per cent, the “safe” threshold for an incumbent’s re-election. His disapproval rating, though, jumped a point to 45 per cent. 

In the Rasmussen daily tracking poll, meanwhile, Obama leads Romney 47-46. When “leaners” are included in the tracking poll, the race is tied 48-48.
