The latest Gallup numbers show President Barack Obama leading Mitt Romney by 1 point (47 to 46), down from a 7-point lead one week ago.

Gallup polled registered voters, not likely voters. Romney does better in polls of likely voters.

Note that 7 percent of the sample was undecided. In races that include an incumbent, most undecided voters usually end up voting for the challenger.

Clearly, Romney is still very much in this race, notwithstanding the anti-Romney MSM narrative.

Interestingly, Obama is polling at … 47 percent. Wait, does that number sound familiar?
