    To 49-46 on Sat morning which means that Romney's friday was good.  Only reuters issues same day results.  Romney's Friday won't fall off until next Sat?

      I'm guessing Obama plummeted and Romney jumped on Thu. they held steady on Fri. and yesterday they started moving back.

      So by Fri.  Obama had 2 good days replaced with 2 bad days (although the bad days were about the same), and Romney had the opposite.  Since the margin of error is roughly +- 2% and it's a seven day moving average, a 2% bump in any day in Gallup could even be just noise.  

      Of course it's fun to guess what the internals of the poll are actually saying, but it would be more fun if Gallup would actually release the daily numbers.
