Obama gains in new national poll

in Uncategorized by

A new Democracy Corps poll shows President Obama now leads Mitt Romney in the presidential race by a 3-point margin, 49% to 46% — a net 3-point improvement since last month.

Key finding: “Obama’s gains come partially from gains on whom voters trust to handle the economy. He was down 7 points to Romney in our last poll but is now dead-even. Mitt Romney has asked voters to contrast his business experience against Obama’s record on the economy. Voters are beginning to make that choice, and it has moved voters away from Romney.”
