Barack Obama leads Mitt Romney by eight points nationally, according to a new poll from Pew Research Center. Obama has 51 percent of support from the likely voters polled, compared to 43 percent who support Romney.
The Pew poll also found that Obama supporters are more positive about their candidate than those supporting Romney; 68 percent who favor Obama say they are "strongly" supporting him, while only 56 percent of those who favor Romney say the same thing. And while 74 percent of those Obama supporters say they will be voting "for Obama" rather than against his opponent, only 45 percent supporting Romney say they are voting "for" him, while 52 percent say they are voting "against" Romney's opponent.
