Romney Would Tie with Obama

Mitt Romney would tie with President Obama in a general election match-up, according to a Gallup poll released today of registered voters, 47 percent to 47 percent. When only voters from swing states (Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Wisconsin), Romney edged out Obama by one point, 47 percent to 46 percent.

Herman Cain is polling two points behind Obama, 46 percent to 48 percent, in a national contest. He drops another point, down to 45 percent support, if swing state voters are polled, while Obama remains stable at 48 percent.

If Rick Perry was the general election candidate, he would lose by 4 points, 45 percent to Obama’s 49 percent. Among swing state voters, the results are 44 percent Perry to 49 percent Obama.
