Obama With Big Lead in New Poll
The president's wide lead in the Pew polls have been largely discounted as an "outlier" (even by the likes of Nate Silver) since most of the other polls have the race quite close, while Rasmussen--just guessing--probably has Romney with a 32% lead. Anyway: Largely under the radar, the Reuters-IPSOs poll has also shown Obama with a nice bulge and today it has shown a widening gap to 49%-42%, even with more folks than ever saying the U.S. is heading in the wrong direction. Most of them may feel that we'd go in the same direction under Romney, but on steroids.
