Romney Leads Nationally

From Fox News:

Mitt Romney now holds a narrow advantage over Barack Obama in the race for the White House — 46 percent to 45 percent, if the election were held today, according to a Fox News national poll of likely voters released Wednesday.  

That’s a six-point turnaround and a three-point “debate bounce” for Romney.

Romney is doing well among independents (leading by 12 points). And Obama’s support among young adults is shrinking:

Support for Obama is down a bit across the board — most notably among young voters:  Fifty percent of voters under age 30 back Obama, down from 58 percent two weeks ago.  

According to the Fox News exit poll, 66 percent of young voters and 52 percent of independents backed Obama in the 2008 election.  

The likely voter sample was 40 percent Democrat, 39 percent Republican, and 18 percent independent.
