Battleground States: Romney now leads Obama in 11 states

And the winner is ....?
Romney now leading in 11 Battleground States, says the Rasmussen survey of those states released on Monday October 22, before the final debate:

In the 11 swing states, Mitt Romney earns 49% of the vote to Obama’s 46%.  Two percent (2%) like another candidate in the race, and four percent (4%) are undecided.

This survey is conducted on a rolling seven-day basis, so today’s update mostly includes responses following Tuesday night’s presidential debate. Romney has now held a small lead for 11 of the last 14 days; Obama was ahead twice, and the candidates ran even once.  

In 2008, Obama won these states by a combined margin of 53% to 46%, virtually identical to his national margin.

Romney now leads 50% to 37% among unaffiliated voters in the combined swing states.

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Monday shows Mitt Romney attracting support from 49% of voters nationwide, while President Obama earns the vote from 47%. Two percent (2%) prefer some other candidate, and two percent (2%) are undecided. See daily tracking history.

Last week, three states shifted from Toss-Up to Leans Romney in the Rasmussen Reports Electoral College projectionsFlorida,  North Carolina  and Missouri.  The projections now show President Obama with 237 Electoral Votes and Governor Romney with 235. Seven states with 66 Electoral College votes remain Toss-ups: Ohio,  Virginia, Wisconsin, Colorado,  Iowa,  Nevada  and New Hampshire. 

New data will be released today for the swing states of Colorado and Iowa.

This race is going down to the wire.

    ONe argument for a national housing strategy is it allows people to heal. I've broken one window and thrown down (on torso) one 260lb crazy person on grumpy mornings with no end in sight....The idiots rewarded with petro dollars in AB/SK don't want people to rest and get free cash, but sometimes rest is the way to having oil under the ground or whatever Cgy and SK define virtue as. B.Murray knew they were hicks. I didn't pay enough attention to the Comedy Book #2 of the Coyote anti-mormom Bible add-on. The Book of Wiley.

  2. Rasmussen released Oct 23:

    In the 11 swing states, Mitt Romney earns 50% of the vote to Obama’s 45%. Two percent (2%) like another candidate in the race, and four percent (4%) are undecided.

    This is now the third time Romney has hit the 50% mark in the combined swing states in the past four days and is the biggest lead either candidate has held in nearly three weeks. This survey is conducted on a rolling seven-day basis, and as a result, virtually all of the interviews for today’s update were completed before the end of last night’s presidential debate. Romney has now held a modest lead for 12 of the last 15 days; Obama was ahead twice, and the candidates ran even once.

    In 2008, Obama won these states by a combined margin of 53% to 46%, virtually identical to his national margin.

    Romney now leads by 16 points among male voters in the swing states and trails by three points among female voters.

    Nationally, Romney has now also hit the 50% level of support in the Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll.
