I'm following Fox News' lead and removing Rasmussen (but keeping Gallup) in the poll of all polls. Obama's lead has increased minimally since October 13 from 1.9 to 2.7 percent. Rasmussen only shaves off a little bit of his persistent lead. Hence the last desperate effort by the Romney campaign to spread outright lies in its final ad. The Detroit Free Press takes note of the distortions here.
