For our final PurplePoll, we looked at voters nationwide and in the Purple Electorate. With just four days to go until the election, President Obama leads Governor Romney 47% to 46% nationally. In Purple States, Obama leads by two: 48% to 46%.
Romney holds a slight lead among independents nationally, 44% to 43%. In Purple States, Obama holds a 1-point advantage among independents (45% to 44%). As we have seen before, views about the direction of the economy remain the strongest predictor of vote choice: President Obama gets 93% of voters who think the economy is getting better, while Governor Romney has 90% of voters who think it is getting worse.

In Ohio, Obama holds a six-point advantage over Romney among likely voters, 51 percent to 45 percent, which is unchanged from last month’s poll in the Buckeye State. And in Florida, the president gets support from 49 percent of likely voters, while his GOP challenger gets 47 percent. Those numbers are virtually identical to the ones from October, when it was Obama 48 percent, Romney 47 percent.
