Obama Maintains Lead in Swing States

A new USA Today/Gallup poll finds President Obama with a slight lead over Mitt Romney in the 12 battleground states likely to decide the election, 47% to 44%. That's better than his standing in the non-battleground states, where Romney leads 47% to 45%.

"Despite airing millions of dollars in TV ads and taking a high-profile trip abroad, Romney has failed to budge in the swing states, stuck at 44% or 45% since April. In that time, Obama has maintained a steady 47% despite a string of disappointing monthly jobs reports and an 8.3% national unemployment rate."
