In a survey taken March 20-26, with a margin of error of +/- 4 points. The swing states surveyed are Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin.

You can read about it in this USA Today piece by Susan Page

A couple of key takeaways:

Obama leads 51%-42%, just one month after trailing Romney by 2 points.

Romney leads among all men by 1 point, but Obama swamps that with an 18 point lead among all women.

Romney leads 50-38% among men 56 and older.

The biggest change came among women under 50. In mid-February, just under half of those voters supported Obama. Now more than six in 10 do while Romney's support among them has dropped by 14 points, to 30%. The president leads him 2-1 in this group.
Yes, there are still many months until the general election.  Romney in theory can turn around his negative approvals, which in other polls now tops 50%.  But remember, by the time Mitt left the Governor's mansion in MA, almost 2/3 of the voters disapproved of him.   The more people see of Mitt, the less they like him.

Just thought I'd brighten your Sunday.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
