The Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney exhibits an advantage over President Barack Obama, although meager, he would win if elections were held today and he proves that the candidate by a political force.

With 47 percent of support of registered voters, the former governor of Massachusetts for two points above the president, according to the latest Gallup poll, conducted between 11 and 15 April.

However, these digits confirm a dead heat in statistical terms. The Results indicate a shift of independent voters to Romney by 45 percent instead of 39 percent following the ruling. For its part, the Rasmussen polling shows Obama and Romney tied at 45 percent.

The company specialized in investigations revealed from the previous week that the national race is very tight, after a series of studies showed that in March the head of government with a lead of up to two digits.

According to the average of multiple digital site surveys Royal Clear Politics, Obama still holds a national lead of three points on the applicant Mormon faith, but the average does not take into account the latest Gallup numbers.

The investigation began the same day that the candidate left the race Rick Santorum for the nomination in the Republican Party, which essentially marks the beginning of the electoral battle between Romney and Obama.

The rest of the contenders, the former leader of the House of Representatives Newt Gingrich and Texas legislator Ron Paul have no chance to get the 144 thousand delegates who granted him the nomination by the party called red, but refused to leave just before the official end.

The present results could be a sign that conservatives have begun to rally around its presumptive nominee, so which most analysts predict a tight race to be decided by a handful of so-called "swing states".
