Well, things are not looking too good for Rmoney according to this latest Reuters/Ipsos Poll of registered voters. President Obama leads Rmoney 49 - 42 in this national poll. This comes on the heels of swing state polls in Iowa and Ohio that have President Obama solidly in the lead there, as well.
Obama up by ten in Iowa:
Obama up by 7 in Ohio:
Some key findings in the Reuters/Ipsos Poll:
The President seems to have taken the foreign policy mantle from Republicans, with majorities preferring his policies both in regards to Afghanistan and in fighting terrorism.
The voters also trust him more in regards to health care and social security.
Ipsos is vague about the breakdown on whom voters trust more with the economy:
In another indicator that the debate this election will center on the economy, jobs and domestic policy, voters are closely divided on the relative strength of Obama and Romney on jobs and the economy, taxes, and immigration.http://www.ipsos-na.com/...
What does seem clear is that Romney is likely going to have a pretty tough time if the economy continues to grow and Democrats manage to get out the vote in November.
So.... let's GOTV and make sure that the Big Fossil/Big Oil PAC money doesn't trip us up!
