Obama Pulls Ahead on Economy

Another day, another poll. The latest one, conducted by The New York Times and CBS News, reveals that voters are more confident in Obama's ability to fix the economy and make jobs, taking away Romney's longstanding lead on economic issues. The president is also ahead in issues relating to foreign policy, Medicare, and the middle class. In fact, the only category in which voters say he falls decidedly short of Romney is handling the federal deficit. But don’t get too excited, Dems: The poll also puts Obama ahead of Romney in a vote, though his three-point lead still falls within the poll's margin of error.
