National Polls Show Pres. Obama Leading Mitt Romney
Matt | On 02, Apr 2012
There is a bit of good news for the Obama campaign this week, per the latest poll from USA Today/Gallup.
President Obama leads Mitt Romney in a national survey of potential voters by a 49-45 percent margin. He leads by an even larger margin of 51-43 percent over Rick Santorum.
In 12 swing states, the winning margin is even larger for the president. He topped Mitt Romney by 51-42 percent. The swing state results are a little better than last week’s Rasmussen numbers in Florida and Ohio that showed the president barely leading in those contests.
At this stage of the game, I’m sure the Obama campaign is happy to see this. But, we are still seven months away from Election Day. That’s two lifetimes in politics. The president will have to work extremely hard to maintain and grow his lead over the next few months. He needs to continue to act like the underdog.
ANSWER IN THE COMMENTS SECTION BELOW:
Do you think President Obama’s polling lead over Mitt Romney, if he’s the GOP nominee, will grow or shrink between now and November?
