PEW Research Poll shows Obama ahead nationally by 10 pts
A new poll from the Pew Research Center shows one of the biggest national leads for President Obama since the general election campaign began in earnest — a 10 point lead, 51 percent to presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney’s 41 percent. Pew registered a 7 point lead for Obama in their June survey.
The bump for Obama seems to come from Romney’s stumbling — Pew picked up a downward trend in the former governor’s favorability rating, which has long been a struggle for Romney.
“By a 52% to 37% margin, more voters say they have an unfavorable than favorable view of Mitt Romney,” Pew wrote. “The poll, conducted prior to Romney’s recent overseas trip, represents the sixth consecutive survey over the past nine months in which his image has been in negative territory. While Romney’s personal favorability improved substantially between March and June - as Republican voters rallied behind him after the primary season ended-his image has again slipped over the past month.”

a 10 point lead. And, that favorable/unfavorable poll was taken BEFORE Rmoney's overseas trip??? He's in deeeep trouble.
I really don't see how he can get those numbers up but I guess anything can happen.
We should not get over-confident. Polling will change a lot before election day.
For now though, this is very good news. The O-team's messaging is filtering through to the public.
