New poll puts Romney ahead
Last week’s C-B-S News/New York Times opinion poll contained some interesting information. Here are the highlights:
Republican Mitt Romney now has a three-point lead over President Obama, despite positive movement on the economy.
32% say the economy is in good shape … the highest percentage since January 2008 … but 67% say it’s still bad. 36% say the economy is improving.
While most voters say the President’s support of same-sex marriage will not impact their vote, 25% say they are less likely to vote for him because of it.
Most Americans favor some type of legal recognition of same-sex relationships, including 38% who support marriage. When asked directly whether same-sex marriage should be legal, 42% said it should be, but 51% said it should not.
The presidential question has been asked six times by this survey since January. Romney has won twice, Obama twice, and there have been two ties.
Doesn’t look as if this will be a landslide for either candidate.
Our thought for today is from Paul “Bear” Bryant:
“It’s not the will to win that matters … everyone has that. It’s the will to prepare to win that matters.”
