Politico's coverage of the latest swing-state polls and their results revealed that Mitt Romney is still in the lead for Electoral College votes from the nine swing-states: 66 over President Barack Obama's 44 votes.
In their "2012 Swing States" analysis, last updated on Oct. 31 at 12:04 a.m. EDT, Politico revealed findings that suggest Romney will receive all 29 Electoral votes from Florida, all 15 from North Carolina and all 13 from Virginia. The polling data used is provided by RealClearPolitics.
Florida has the highest number of Electoral College votes out of all the nine swing-states. The 2012 swing-states are Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Caroline, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin, according to Politico

In comparison, Obama is predicted to receive all Electoral votes from the swing-states Ohio, Wisconsin, Nevada, New Hampshire and Iowa.
Election Day 2012 is Nov. 6. The candidates are making their last efforts before the big day to round up as much support as they can, even amidst Hurricane Sandy hitting the East Coast and disrupting their campaign schedules.
However, another Politico report sourced a Gallup poll that shows results indicating that Obama may just end up being victorious in the election, guaranteeing his seat once again in the White House. A Gallup polling released Wednesday, but conducted before Hurricane Sandy hit the East Coast, revealed that 44 percent of Americans believe Obama will win the election and 32 percent believe Romney will win. Another presidential poll might not mean nothing, especially since numbers continuously change, however, the report noted that in the 1996, 2000, 2004 and 2008 elections, Americans, and similar polls, accurately predicted the popular vote winner.
The poll of 1,063 was conducted on Saturday and Sunday.
