Pollster John Zogby: "This is not a significant lead for Romney, but he continues to move up while Obama slides down. An incumbent polling only 45% with one week to go is simply not good. Romney now leads 47% to 38% among independents. The two candidates are now pretty much tied (48% to 47% Romney) among the one in four who have already voted. Obama holds a big lead among those 12% who say they are very likely to vote (50% -35%). He has to insure that they actually do. Is the President hurt by voters in his base who can't get to the polls because of the storm or is he helped by looking like a good crisis manager?"

The NewsmaxZogby Poll of U.S. Likely Voters sampled 36.8% Democrats, 34.8% Republicans and 28.4% independents; 74.3% white, 10% Hispanic, and 12% African American; and 18% age 18-29, 39% age 30-49, 25% age 50-64, and 18% age 65+.

Pollster John Zogby: "Interestingly, two prominent pollsters have pulled out of Florida declaring it won by Romney. On the other hand, several of my colleagues are coming around to my numbers. This is very close and we will stay until the end. Obama holds a healthy 12 point lead among independents and is widening his lead among Hispanics. But Romney is polling double digits among African Americans. In a multi-candidate race, Gary Johnson's 2% and Jill Stein's 1% could be the difference between Obama and Romney."

The NewsmaxZogby Poll of Florida Likely Voters sampled 35% Democrats, 37% Republicans and 28% independents; 70% white, 15% Hispanic, and 13% African American; and 15% age 18-29, 34% age 30-49, 28% age 50-64, and 23% age 65+.

Pollster John Zogby: "Ohio is looking better and better for Obama. Romney is running an ad trashing the auto bailout and not getting good grades from local media for the effort. Obama is up 11 among early voters, 17 with independents, and 15 among women. His 66% to 32% lead with young voters pretty much matches his 2008 output. Obama's lead is growing daily but a week is an eternity."

The NewsmaxZogby Poll of Ohio Likely Voters sampled 37% Democrats, 37% Republicans and 26% independents; 78% white, 5% Hispanic, and 12% African American; and 17% age 18-29, 38% age 30-49, 28% age 50-64, and 17% age 65+.

Pollster John Zogby: "It is very hard to talk about momentum this year -- this week. Romney had a lead of 4 points, but that has dissipated. Obama is doing well enough with all of his key groups, except young voters. In the 5-way horserace Romney is polling 43% among 18-29 year olds. At the same time, Romney continues to under-perform among evangelicals. The election is getting closer in time and staying close in numbers. Did the president get a slight boost from the hurricane?"

The NewsmaxZogby Poll of Virginia Likely Voters sampled 37% Democrats, 36% Republicans and 27% independents; 71% white, 6% Hispanic, and 19% African American; and 18% age 18-29, 38% age 30-49, 32% age 50-64, and 12% age 65+.

NewsmaxZogby Tracking Poll Methodology
For All Likely Voters Poll

Using trusted interactive partner resources, thousands of adults were invited to participate in this interactive survey. Each invitation is password coded and secure so that one respondent can only access the survey one time.

Using information based on census data, voter registration figures, CIA fact books and exit polls, we use complex weighting techniques to best represent the demographics of the population being surveyed. Weighted variables may include age, race, gender, region, party, education, and religion.

Subsets of the data have a larger margin of error than the whole data set. As a rule we do not rely on the validity of very small subsets of the data especially sets smaller than 50-75 respondents. At that subset we can make estimations based on the data, but in these cases the data is more qualitative than quantitative.

Additional factors can create error, such as question wording and question order.
