Poll Detailing

We reported earlier today Gallup's finding that Romney now has a healthy 4% lead, gained since the first prez debate (and perhaps also reflecting the Veep debate).  Now Gallup has put some meat on those fragile bones with a breakdown of where Obama has lost votes compared to 2008, when he was 7% ahead of McCain.  Here's an excerpt:
This shows that compared with 2008, Obama's support is down the most among voters in the South, 30- to 49-year-olds, those with four-year college degrees, postgraduates, men, and Protestants. He has also slipped modestly among whites, Easterners, women, and Catholics.
Obama's support is roughly the same now as in 2008 among 18- to 29-year-olds, seniors, nonwhites, and voters in the West and Midwest; however, he has not gained support among any major group compared with 2008.
