08/11/12 - President Obama holds 7-point lead over presumptive GOP challenger Mitt Romney in a CNN/ORC International poll released Thursday. The poll also shows Romney's unfavorable rating is up, and Romney's supporters are increasingly getting behind him. However, "Among independent voters, the poll indicates President Obama has a 53%-42% lead," CNN Polling Director Keating Holland said. "The president holds a 9 point advantage among women and a 6 point edge among men." ~ YES!!!!
