Mitt Romney continues to inch up in Rasmussen's tracking poll, and now actually leads Barack Obama, 48%-47% among likely voters.
That number jumps to 49%-47% when "leaners" are included.
Rasmussen also shows the GOP regaining its enthusiasm advantage.
Forty-nine percent (49%) of GOP voters are following the race on a daily basis. Among Democrats, just 42% are that interested. Throughout 2012, Republicans have consistently held the enthusiasm advantage.
However, for a few days following the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, the president’s party caught up to the GOP on this important measure of potential turnout.
This is a good poll for Romney, but should probably be treated as an outlier. Romney hasn't led outright in a poll since August, and currently trails Obama by 3.3% in the RCP average.
