In Iowa, Undecided Voters Are Disappointed in Obama But Can't Commit to Romney

Monday, July 23, 2012

President Barack Obama won Iowa in 2008 by nine percentage points, but his support here is softening as his approval rating and favor with independent voters has dipped.

Obama's Lead Grows in Swing States

Tuesday, July 17, 2012

Pundits and pollsters are calling it a dead heat, but November's election may not be as close as it seems. Whichever way swing states lean could mean the victory for either of the candidates, and current polling data shows President Obama with a significant lead in those battleground regions.

Monday, July 16, 2012

President Obama’s campaign continues its pressure on Romney to release his full tax records. If Bain’s SEC filings listed him as its chief executive from 1999 to 2003, they say, why did he claim to have left the company in 1999?

Opinion: Post-Libor, Romney and Obama Need a Plan to Fix Banking

Monday, July 16, 2012

This is bigger than Obamacare. It's much more significant than Romney continuing as CEO of Bain after 1999. It has a far greater impact on every American this election year than any other issue the candidates have been discussing or will address in presidential debates this fall.
