Obama Leads Romney in New National Poll

Women, minorities, and independents power president's advantage.

A new national poll shows President Obama leading presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney 50 percent to 42 percent among registered voters.

The Associated Press-GfK poll found that Obama's lead is due to his popularity among women, minorities, and independents. But Americans are split on who can best handle the economy, giving Romney an opening. Also, one in four said they could be persuaded to switch candidates.


The AP-GfK poll of 1,004 adults was conducted May 3-7. The margin of error for the sub-group of 871 registered voters is +/- 4.2 percentage points.
