Today was a very exciting day, because I was able to vote for the President for the first time!! As the polls are coming to a close, Americans are anxiously awaiting who will be the next President of the United States. As we watch the TV, stalk news sites, and twitter feed we also look to another source to stay up to date on the election. Gallup posted their final pre-election survey for the presidential race.
Only 1% stands between the Barack Obama and Mitt Romney for President.
This studied was conducted on November 1-4, 2012, on the Gallup Daily Election Tracking Poll. This study was taken with random sample of 3117 adults living in the United States and the District of Columbia. The study results have a 95% confidence that the maximum margin of error is +/- 2% points.
Gallup has been conducting these pre- election surveys throughout October as well. This is similar to trend studies, since Gallup is showing how the opinions of the general public abut these candidates has changed over time. It is interesting that they mention how the favorability of both president changes after certain events take place, such as Obama being being seen as more favorable on the east after he was present for the ecovery of superstorm Sandy.
With only 1% of the polls putting Obama in the lead it is too close to tell who will be elected at this point in time. Three percent of likely voters are still undecided on who they will be voting for. This survey shows that there will be a very close election in the national popular vote. In Gallup's final poll the results showed that Obama and Romney tied in favorability. This election is too close to call, America will have to wait until the final ballot is in.
No, No, and O.
