The criticism of the earlier polls was that they sampled too many Dems. (assuming the same ratios of voting as the patters of 2008). Romney is now ahead even with the sampling of too many Dems. Get the difference? Prob. not.

Rasmussen Reports' Daily Presidential Tracking Poll today puts Romney ahead of President Obama 49% to 47% among nationwide voters.

Important to note, according to Rasmussen: approximately one-third of the data was collected before Romney's strong debate performance this past Wednesday. It looks like "[t]he margin of sampling error" for Rasmussen's daily tracking polls, however, falls at +/- 3 percentage points.

Still, the poll is good news for the GOP challenger.

"Today is the first time Romney has been ahead by even a single point since mid-September," Rasmussen states.

This news follows the positive trend...
