Obama Expands Lead Over Romney

A new Fox News poll finds President Obama got a five point bounce among women and a 12-point bounce among independents from the Democratic convention.

Obama now leads Mitt Romney by five points among likely voters, 48% to 43%.

"The poll finds the president has a significant advantage on most issues and candidate traits. Voters trust Obama more than Romney on foreign policy (+15 points), education (+14 points), Medicare (+11 points), health care (+9 points) and terrorism (+8 points). Romney bests Obama outright on just one issue: cutting government spending (+13 points)."
