A new New York Times/CBS News/Quinnipiac poll has the President leading international man of buffoonery Willard "Mitt the Twit" Romney in the key states of Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Florida. These are "must win" states for both candidates, especially Mitt the Twit.
The President's likability and empathy with the middle class are his main strengths, and he ties with his opponent in terms of trust in handling the economy despite continuing anxiety about the economy. In Ohio, Obama leads by 6 points, in Pennsylvania he leads by 11 points, and in Florida he leads by 6 points. Clearly, the ads aimed at defining Mitt the Twit as an out-of-touch plutocrat who would protect the wealthy at the expense of the middle class worked (despite the hand-wringing from the likes of Cory "Snooker" Booker).
Perhaps the most encouraging finding is that nearly 90 percent polled have made up their minds and don't expect to change their vote. Thus, Mitt the Twit would seem to have an uphill battle with under 100 days left to what will still be a close election.
