Poll: Obama 47, Romney 44 – Obama has lost the narrow lead he had held just a month ago among registered voters

Obama has lost the narrow lead he had held just a month ago among registered voters. In the new poll, 47 percent say they will vote for the president and 44 percent for Romney, a difference that is not statistically significant. The poll also shows that Romney has recovered well from a bruising Republican primary, with more of his supporters saying they are certain to vote for him now.

Still, in a measure of Romney’s own vulnerabilities, even some voters who say they support Romney believe the president will still be re-elected. Of all adults polled, 56 percent believe Obama will win a second term. …

About half — 49 percent — approve of how Obama is handling his job as president, dropping him below the 50 percent mark he was above in May. Disapproval of Obama is highest — 55 percent — for his handling of the economy. Still, registered voters are split virtually evenly on whether Romney or Obama would do a better job improving it. …

About 4 out of 10 adults say they are worse off now than they were four years ago, compared with nearly 3 out of 10 who say they are doing better now. Among those who say they’re doing worse, 60 percent say they plan to vote for Romney in November.

  1. An AP poll? Thanks, but I think I’ll ignor the source. There is way too much b_tching going on, on the left-hand side of the tracks these days. Me thinks the shine has gone off the turd.

  2. Yea ..but this is only “registered voters” You need to add on all the votes Obama expects to get from the dead and illegal immegrants, and the ole, ill vote as many times as i want to and get away with it union people. Add them and Obama has a nice lead.
