Several new polls were released Monday and the spread is all over the place. Gallup daily tracking poll shows Romney leading President Obama by a 51 to 45 margin and Romney has held that six to seven point lead for the past several days. Romney remains in the lead in the Rasmussen daily tracking poll and leads in the swing state poll. Monmouth U poll shows Romney 48 to 45 over Obama showing Romney's momentum continuing from last week. About 12 percent of likely voters say they have already cast their ballots in early voting and Romney is up in this poll. While the poll has Obama with a slight lead with women voters, Romney is gaining voters confidence with important issues in the election cycle, Romney leads Obama on the budget and national debt 51 to 42 and on jobs and the economy 50 to 44. This poll oversampled Democrats by four. Meantime, Romney leads 49 to 47 in the latest Politico/GWU Battleground poll. In fact Romney leads by a 52 to 45 margin with extremely likely voters. Romney also leads in the important swing state poll. Again Democrats were oversampled by four. Romney also wins the gender gap in this poll with Romney winning men and Obama winning women but at a smaller margin, thus giving Romney a slight edge. While Obama leads with younger voters, Romney is tied among 35 to 44 year olds and has a double digit lead among 45 to 64 year olds and a 20 point lead among seniors. Meantime, the latest NBC, CBS and ABC polls show President Obama either tied with Romney or slightly ahead but within the margin of error leaving the race at a near statistical tie with Romney making gains since the last time those polls were released. These polls come two weeks before the election and the same night the last presidential debate is televised.
