The overall pro-Romney trend is not stopping, but continues. Yesterday PPP, a Democratic polling organization, found Romney up by one percent in New Hampshire. PPP’s previous poll of that state, in August, had Obama leading by six. (Romney leads in New Hampshire by one point in the RCP Average.) In Iowa, PPP also has Romney up by one point in a poll completed yesterday. PPP’s previous poll in Iowa, in late September, had Obama up by seven. At the same time, an NBC/WSJ/Marist poll completed on October 17 showed Obama ahead in Iowa by eight, which was the same margin that poll found a month ago. The current RCP Average for Iowa is an Obama lead of 2.4.
Also, several polls, including one by the leftist Daily Kos and the leftist Service Employees International Union (SEIU), show Romney leading Obama in favorability for the first time.
