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.

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!

2:41 PM PT: Forgot to mention that Obama has hit the magical 50% approval rating in this poll.

Also, for those who like to play around with the election map state by state, here's a site that lets you do just that:

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.
