| Bernie Goldberg parses the polls:
Funny how these polls pretty much reflect what I think. If only the Rs would change on FP, Mitt would have my vote. As it is, I waver but only because of Obamacare.
And according to a new CBS News/New York Times poll, voters give President Obama a lead over Mitt Romney when asked which candidate would do a better job handing foreign policy,
Medicare, health care, taxes – and this is a significant switch – even the economy and unemployment, where the president holds a one point lead over Romney. One point isn’t much, that’s for sure. But the economy was Romney’s strength — an issue Romney won in the polls until now.
Only when asked who would do a better job with the federal budget deficit does Romney come out ahead of the president, 51 to 43 percent.
