So, can it really be true that Romney's debate bump was exaggerated, or just temporary? It looks like the President will squeak out reelection.

Obama inches ahead in two national polls


Two new national polls released on Sunday show President Obama inching ahead of Republican Mitt Romney in what still shapes up as a photo finish 2012 American presidential election.

A Pew Research poll put the 44th President ahead by a 50-47 percent margin, a three-point improvement since the last survey, which showed a 47-47 percent tie. The survey has reflected fall trends, with Obama up by eight after the conventions and Romney moving to a four-point lead in early October, after his strong showing in the first presidential debate.

“Obama’s increases in likely voter support are most notable among women, older voters and political moderates,” Pew found. “Women now favor Obama by a 13-point margin (53-40 percent), up from six points a week ago and reflects a shift toward Obama since early October.”

Men surveyed by Pew favor Romney by a 50-42 percent margin.

The ABC News/Washington Post daily tracking poll gives Obama a 49-48 percent edge. Romney led in the poll two weeks ago and had reached 50 percent.

The Pew poll involved 2,709 live interviews using both cell phones and land lines. ABC/Post interviewed 2,069 voters. Both polls were taken late last week and over the weekend.
