Intrade has started listing weekly markets for the difference in polling numbers between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney. These markets will be settled using the daily Election 2012 Tracking poll published by Gallup (near the upper right corner of the Gallup webpage).
Markets range from a +5 percentage point lead for Barack Obama, down to both candidates being all-square, and then out to +5 percentage point lead for Mitt Romney. The data published by Gallup at 1:00pm each Friday will be used to settle these markets.
These markets can be found under Politics > 2012 US Election > Obama vs. Romney - Weekly Polling Numbers
