Nevada: Romney Ascends to Near Tie
In a new Rasmussen Poll that was taken after the final presidential debate, Mitt Romney is edging toward a tie with Barack Obama.
One week ago, Rasmussen reported that Obama had a 50%-47% lead, but this week it’s 50%-48%. Romney has never polled this high in Nevada; the highest total for Romney on 2012 has been 45%.
Romney and Obama are exactly tied at 49% among Nevada voters who are certain they will vote and comprise 97% of Nevada’s electorate. Obama won the state in 2008 by a 12.4% margin, 55.1%-42.7%.
