As Team Obama continues to try and defend President Obama's "you didn't build that" comments, Mitt Romney is pulling ahead in the polls. Romney is currently overseas where he will visit England, Israel and Poland. Yesterday his campaign staff met with small business owners in 24 states to discuss how they built their businesses.


These are the results when registered voters are asked: "Suppose the presidential election were held today. If Barack Obama were the Democratic Party's candidate and Mitt Romney were the Republican Party's candidate, who would you vote for Barack Obama, the Democrat or Mitt Romney, the Republican?" Those who are undecided are further asked if they lean more toward Obama or Romney and their leanings are incorporated into the results.



The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Wednesday shows Mitt Romney attracting 47% of the vote, while President Obama earns support from 44%. Five percent (5%) prefer some other candidate, and four percent (4%) are undecided.
