(Newsroom America) -- Perhaps enjoying a popularity surge following his nomination at the just-ended Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla., Mitt Romney has moved ahead of President Barack Obama in a pair of new polls.
A Gallup survey published Friday had Romney up by a single point, 47-46 percent, well within the poll's plus-or-minus 3 point margin of error.
A separate Rasmussen survey showed Romney up by a larger amount, 47-44 percent, with 4 percent preferring another candidate and 6 percent undecided.
"As expected, Romney is enjoying a modest bounce from the past week's Republican National Convention. He trailed the president by two when the convention began and is up by three" points now, a 5-point shift, Rasmussen Reports said.
