Now that you've edited your post - I should respond to the edit.

Romney was ahead in the RCP average twice. And Obama has not once had 50% in the average.

Also - since this thread is about the Gallup daily tracking poll - it's important to note that Romney was in the lead in the poll two weeks ago which is when the Romney vs. Obama daily tracking poll first debuted. He opened up a 5-point lead that week. Obama eventually took the lead. Now Romney has retaken the lead.

Fine with me, Romney's up 8 points in the Gallup daily tracking in just a week. That's a nice trend

Willard was up only twice while losing the rest of the entire time since the polling data was started is a good thing? That's an interesting way of looking at things with a glass half full

Wow.

A 1% lead.

I am really impressed!

The Obamas better start packing their bags!

Given that there are still people on the far right who haven't warmed up to him who will come around, that Obama is still below 50% (and his approval is still below 50% in virtually all polls), and that Romney is just now starting to tack towards the center to appeal to centrist independent voters, I don't think being 3 points behind in a poll average is terrible. In fact, given the three ring circus that the GOP primary season turned into, conventional wisdom would be that Romney to be down by 10 points.

Romney' big problem is that he has dug so many holes for himself due to unprecedented flip floipping and sucking up the the right wing extremists, that once the debates begin, he will fall into every one of them.

Excellent.
Obamas big problem is that he has dug so many holes for himself due to sucking up to left wing extremists and then NOT following through on his promises, as well as not doing much while in office. The independents arent impressed. And now he's talking about eating dogs!
