Less than a week until Election Day, and the race is neck in neck. Across all polls, both candidates are ranked almost exactly the same, making the next president even more difficult to predict. Who will be the next to fill the White House?
In this past week, Pew Research and ABC News/Washington Post’s followers were identically split in their favoring of either Mitt or Barack at 47% and 49%, respectively. The greatest variance in numbers out of the sites above is Gallup, whose participants favored Romney over Obama by 6 percentage points.
So, what do these numbers mean for Tuesday’s turnout? Fact is, many have already cast their ballot, and while each of these websites are reputable sources, their audiences may be limited and are reflective of only a small audience range. Which leave us wondering, waiting and glued to final result announcements in coming days.
