These are the results when registered voters are asked: “Suppose the presidential election were held today. If Barack Obama were the Democratic Party’s candidate and former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney were the Republican Party’s candidate, who would you vote for Barack Obama, the Democrat or Mitt Romney, the Republican?” Those who are undecided are further asked if they lean more toward Obama or Romney and their leanings are incorporated into the results.
However, the latest Pew national poll has President Obama leading, but his lead has narrowed from the previous month.
But, what really matters is a few key battleground states and in one, President Obama is winning – Florida.
The polls are likely to fluctuate now as each national campaign ramps up their advertising programs.
