2012 Election polls are now as divided as the country…

  • 46 - 46 The electorate is split down the middle according to the most recent Reuters/Ipsos poll of likely voters. That’s up one point for Mitt Romney, who trailed President Obama as recently as Saturday.
  • 51 - 45 Mitt Romney leads President Obama by six points, according to Gallup’s most recent poll of likely voters. Considering tonight’s debate is the last one before Election Day, which itself is just over two weeks away, that seems like a pretty big difference in the numbers. Which one seems most accurate to you?
