Obama Lead Over Romney Narrows

A new Pew Research poll finds President Obama holds a slim 49% to 45% advantage over Mitt Romney nationally.

Obama's lead has narrowed since last month, when he had a 12-point advantage, though it is comparable to margins from earlier this year.

Most interesting finding: "The gender gap remains comparable to those in previous surveys during the current campaign, as well as past election cycles; women favor Obama by a 53% to 40% margin; among men voters, 50% favor Romney, while 44% back Obama. Obama has lost ground among both men and women at about the same rate over the past month."
