The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Friday shows President Obama attracting support from 47% of voters nationwide, while Mitt Romney earns the vote from 46%. Three percent (3%) prefer some other candidate, and four percent (4%) are undecided. See daily tracking history.
Romney is supported by 86% of Republicans, while Obama gets the vote from 85% of Democrats. The GOP hopeful has a four-point edge among voters not affiliated with either major party.
When leaners are included, the race is tied at 48% apiece. Leaners are those who are initially uncommitted to the two leading candidates but lean towards one of them when asked a follow-up question. Beginning this Monday, October 1, Rasmussen Reports will be basing its daily updates solely upon the results including leaners.

Who are the 14% of Reps voting for Obama???
That’s why it’s so important for voters in swing states to vote their conscience and vote for Gary Johnson.
The good news is Romney is leading with Indies.
Ah so you a Johnson supporter.
Things have been the same for days now. No movement at all.
How in the Hell can the Marxist be so damn far ahead in the polls??? he should be -20!!
I think i need to start drinking more...
Yes. Romney is +4 with independents. This is a good sign. Obama has no path to victory without winning Indies. No Democrat has lost Indies and won election in last 30 years.
92 Clinton +6 Indies Won by 6
96 Clinton +8 Indies Won by 8
00 Gore -2 Indies Tied (Lost EV)
04 Kerry E Indies Lost by 3
08 Obama +8 Indies Won by 7
00 and 04 Dems did not win Indies and lost.
A lot of them are here on FR. They hate Romney and say they're not voting.
47% for Obama?
Our country is sick. The people of this country are sick, or at least the 47% of the people who support Obama.
I guess it's no coincidence when you have 47% of the people who don't pay federal income tax and you have 47% of the people who support Obama.
And we even have a handful of freaks on this website who complain when you point out that 47% of the people of this country don't pay federal income tax and most of them vote for Obama, and high taxes for the rest of us.
Why??? So we can have 4 more years of the pukehead we now have?????
By my estimate after accounting for undecideds and others Romney up slightly 1-2 points. But swing states are what matter.
How in the Hell can the Marxist be so damn far ahead in the polls???
It does appear then that Ras is using a significant dem oversample model.
If Romney leads by 4 with Indies and leads GOPers more than 0buma lead Rats, then this is a skewed poll.
This looks to me as if things are tilting ever so slightly Obama’s way. There’s still time; but I feel like team Romney is down a field goal and not a lot of time on the clock. They need an Elway-type drive to win it.
what are the dem vs rep vs indy sample percentages?
Those people (conservatives not voting for Romney) are cowards. They claim to be brave defenders of principle over party, but in fact they are people who are afraid to choose sides anf back Romney because then they won’t be as hurt if Romney loses. Its a form of preemptive sour grapes. They can look back and say “Romney wouldn’t have been any better anyway).
My focus isn’t even on the national poll. Now it comes down to the swing state. Ras daily Swing State poll is tied with Romney +1 with leaners 48-47. If history holds and undecideds break for Romney, he is sitting pretty good now.
According to Dick Morris it is +2.5% Dem oversample, I think it may be higher.
