Polls: Obama Leads Romney by 4%
US President Barack Obama is currently attracting the support of 49% of voters nationwide, while Mitt Romney earns 45% of the vote, according to Scott Rasmussen's daily tracking poll.
Three percent (3%) prefer some other candidate, and three percent (3%) are undecided.
"This is the president's biggest lead over Romney among Likely Voters since March 17. Obama's convention bounce is evident both in the head-to-head numbers with Romney and in his Job Approval ratings," Rasmussen writes.
Rasmussen points out that Obama's post-convention bounce began the night after Bill Clinton spoke to the convention and received rave reviews.
Sixty-six percent (66%) of voters nationwide have a favorable opinion of the former president.
Obama also has four-point leads in the Gallup and Reuters/Ipsos polls.
