Obama Holds Solid Lead Nationally

A new CNN/Opinion Research poll finds President Obama leading Mitt Romney nationally by seven points, 52% to 45%.

Key findings: "Romney's favorable rating has remained steady (47% now compared to 48% in July), his unfavorable rating has jumped from 42% last month to 48% now. The president's 56%-42% favorable-unfavorable rating now is little changed from July."

Other findings: 64% of all Americans, and 68% of independents, think Romney favors the rich over the middle class. And 63% of the public thinks Romney should release more tax returns than he has already made public, a figure which rises to 67% among independents.

A new Fox News poll shows Obama leading by nine points, 49% to 40%.
