Gallup poll shows Obama ahead of Romney

Washington, Tue, 03 Apr 2012 ANI

Washington, Apr.3 (ANI): U.S. President Barack Obama has established a four-percentage point lead over Republican rival Mitt Romney in a general election match-up, according to a new USA Today/Gallup Poll Monday.

Almost half of all registered voters, 49 percent, said they would vote for Obama for president, while 45 percent said they would pick Romney.

The four-percentage point lead is within the poll's margin of error, but is still the biggest advantage the president has had against Romney in Gallup polling to date, The Politico reports.

Obama also has a solid eight-point lead among independents against Romney, 48 to 40 percent.

If Rick Santorum were the Republican Party's nominee, 51 percent of registered voters would vote for Obama, while 43 percent would go with the former Pennsylvania senator.

Among the Independents, Obama has a 16-point advantage over Santorum, 52 percent to 36 percent.

In both hypothetical match-ups, only one percent to three percent of Republicans and Democrats said they were undecided, while 12 percent of Independents in the Obama-Romney contest and 13 percent in the Obama-Santorum race have not yet made up their minds, highlighting the importance of appealing to these voters.

The USA Today/Gallup Poll was conducted March 25-26 among 901 registered voters and has a margin of error of plus or minus four percentage points. (ANI)
