Mitt Romney leads in the race for the White House, according to a brand new poll.
The Rasmussen Reports daily tracking poll shows the former Massachusetts governor attracting 49 percent of the vote, while President Obama earns support from 44 percent.
Three percent prefer some other candidate, and four percent are undecided.
Rasmussen reports that Romney’s five-point advantage is the largest enjoyed by either candidate in just over a month in its polling.
Daily tracking results are collected via telephone surveys of 500 likely voters per night and reported on a three-day rolling average basis. The margin of error for the full sample of 1,500 likely voters is +/- 3 percent.
It should be noted that Rasmussen Reports surveys traditionally favor Republicans.
