Gallup Sees Romney in the Lead

Mitt Romney a huge six-point lead over President Obama, according to Gallup's latest national tracking poll out Friday, a trend that first began after the first presidential debate. But there's a twist: According to Marist poll also out today, Obama's still leading in Ohio and Wisconsin—two key swing states that could provide the presidential with the firewall he needs to win the Electoral College. Meanwhile, 64 percent of sampled early voters in the Badger State cast their ballot for Obama, as did 67 percent of those in Iowa. But 54 percent of voters who plan to hit the polls on election day say they'll support Romney, versus 39 percent who know they'll back Obama.
