President Obama's alleged post-convention boost has been wiped away, and it now appears Mitt Romney has gained a slight edge.
A new daily tracking poll released Thursday shows support for the Republican candidate at 47 percent, while 46 percent favor Barack Obama.
These tight presidential races are the new normal. Because of where the United States is demographically, every election is determined by just a few points. Of course, the exception was 2008, when independents were so irate about George W. Bush, they would have backed any Democrat.
According to the survey revealed Thursday, there are also about five percent of Americans still undecided, as well as others who like someone other than Obama or Romney.
You can't believe the liberal mainstream journalists, who are claiming Obama has this one in the bag. Some political experts, in fact, are predicting a Romney landslide, because there is so much more enthusiasm on the GOP side. There are so many polls out there, it's tough to know what to believe.
As the campaign enters its final stretch, the numbers will fluctuate slightly, but the race will probably remain very tight. Like most contemporary elections, you might not know the winner until the morning after Election Day.
