Not too bad for Romney, he's out of the margin of error in the likely voters poll and he just pulled ahead in the registered voters poll, even if they're still in the margin of error on that one. Still too close to call, in my opinion, but it shows Romney's running a decent campaign.
I think it is only too close to call because we have one more debate and we have yet to experience Obama's October surprise.
A 5% national lead is quite formidable presented from Gallup. A 5% win in the election is almost a blow out. And, I can't see the battleground states giving the electoral college win to Obama if the popular vote is as wide as 5%. If anything, the vote should widen for Romney as we close in on election day barring a big external news event.
