Obama's Revived Coalition Spells Trouble for Romney

Like last week's ABC/Washington Post survey, the national Pew Research Center poll released Monday suggests President Obama, at least for now, is reassembling the coalition that powered him to his 2008 victory.

The Pew survey, closely tracking the ABC/Post results, shows that in a potential general election match-up against Mitt Romney, Obama's support among many of the electorate's key groups has converged with his 2008 showing against John McCain. In almost all cases, that represents gains for Obama in polls from last year.
