A Glass Half Full

Though the race is still tight, Obama is pulling ahead of Romney nationwide. In a Politico/George Washington University Battleground Poll, the president leads Romney by 50 to 47 percent and has a job approval rating of 50 percent. Still, 48 percent disapprove of how he's handling his job.
