This could be enormous!
The latest Gallup Poll--of likely
voters--shows Gov. Romney with a six-point lead, 51 percent to 45 percent. That is up from a four-point lead, just yesterday.

True, the popular vote does not elect presidents in the US. But there is simply never that
much of an advantage for one candidate, whenever the other candidate wins the electoral vote.
Of course, it would be a huge mistake to imagine that a poll--any
poll--may be taken as a sure prediction of the future; at best, a poll is merely a snapshot in time. And there is still one presidential debate remaining--plus the possibility of a major "October Surprise."
Still, it is clear which way the momentum is going now.
This bears further watching...
