President Obama tops Republican Mitt Romney in a head-to-head matchup by seven points 46-39% according to the latest Fox News poll-mainly because American voters feel more positive about the economy. Check out these highlights:
1. Obama wups  Swiss Mitt 46 % to 39% - Three weeks ago they were tied at 46%.

2. Obama has 88% of Dems support and Romney gets 84% of the con vote

3. Obama spanks Romney with women 55% to 33%.

4. 74% Obama voters are satisfied with him while only 59% of Romney voters are satisfied.

5. Obama approval 49% -  47% disapprove

6. Highest Fox approval since May 2011, after the raid that killed OBL

7. To Obama’s advantage, voters feel the economy is improving.

8. The number saying the economy is in “poor” condition has dropped 14 percentage points from a year ago. The number saying it’s in better shape is up 11 points.

9. On his handling of Afghanistan: 53% approve.

10. 46% approve of the job Obama’s doing on the economy, up from 39% a year ago.

I bet you a bowl of peach cobbler that they will bury their own poll on cable TV.

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.
