Poll: Romney Leads Over Obama

Mitt Romney lept ahead of President Obama in a new nationwide poll Monday. The New York Times/CBS poll showed Romney at 46 percent and Obama at 43 percent. Last month the poll had found the two tied at 46 percent. 26 percent of respondents said that they were less likely to vote for Obama because of his position on same-sex marriage, while only 16 percent said that his announcement had made them more likely to vote for him. Additionally, most of those polled think Obama’s newfound support of same-sex marriage is politically motivated. Meanwhile, 67 percent of those polled think he made the announcement “mostly for political reasons,” while only 24 percent think he did it “mostly because he thinks it was right.”
