Today’s Good News for Romney: With a week until Election Day, it’s time get your base excited and ready to go. Romney has a slight edge on that front, according to a Pew poll released yesterday. Among registered voters, Obama leads 47 percent to 45 percent. But among likely voters, the race is a dead heat: 46-46. That’s because 76 percent of Republicans reported that they were likely to vote, and only 62 percent of Democrats did. The Pew poll report suggests Republicans are more enthusiastic about Romney since the debates, and they find the race more interesting and informative than they did in June. If Romney can get all of these Republicans to the polls, he might be able to maintain that edge in the final count.
