Pew: Romney Takes 4 Point Lead, Beats Obama on Favorability

In a breathtaking turnaround, Governor Mitt Romney has erased is 8 point deficit in a Pew poll taken in mid-September, and is now four points ahead of the president, 49-45%. It’s important to note that this poll is of likely voters and was taken after Romney obliterated Obama n their first debate. Also, of the four days in the poll sample, three of those include the Friday jobs report.

The poll’s internals all look very good for Romney:

He’s tied with Obama among registered voters, 46-46%. In September, Obama was ahead, 51-42%.

67% of Romney’s support is strong, up from 56%. This ties him with Obama. But in the area of intensity or “given a lot of thought to the election,” Romney has a 15 point lead: 82-65%.
