Here are the latest national tracking polls of the presidential race:
Politico/George Washington University: Obama 49%, Romney 48%
Public Policy Polling: Romney 49%, Obama 48%
Reuters/Ipsos: Obama 49%, Romney 46%
Obama, however, has pulled away from campaign speeches so he could get back to the White House to manage the storm response for the East coast. This is a real sign of his being presidential… after all, he has a full-time job working for us. Romney being unemployed right now will keep up campaigning, but it will be interesting to see how he responds to the President’s activities.
