Rasmussen’s latest: Romney 49, Obama 47

Today’s Rasmussen tracking poll shows Mitt Romney leading President Obama by two points, 49-47. This poll encompasses three days of nightly polling, including one day of post-second debate polling. Thus, roughly one-third of those in the survey were polled after the Tuesday debate.

Yesterday’s Rasmussen poll included no post-debate responses. In that poll, Romney led 49-48.

It’s too early to draw any conclusions from Rasmussen polling about the impact of the second debate on the race. Rasmussen won’t have a poll reflecting 100 percent post-debate responses until Saturday. For now, let’s just say that Rasmussen tracking polling has yet to find evidence that the second debate altered the race.
