Obama has lead in 12 decisive battleground states


President Obama “has an overall edge in the 12 decisive battleground states that is measurably greater than his advantage in national polling,” The Hill reports via The Political Wire.

“The dynamic, which may reflect a combination of lower swing-state unemployment rates and demographic advantages for the president, is causing stirrings of unease among Republicans, even as they emphasize that it is important not to read too much into the state of the race right now.”
