Obama Ahead in Fox Poll

The President's eleven point lead attributed to Romney's gaffes and attack ads.


President Obama tops Mitt Romney in the latest Fox News poll released on Thursday, marking his second lead outside the margin of error this year.

After a series of overseas gaffes and a barrage of attack ads, Romney now trails the president by nine points, with 40 percent. This is the biggest lead yet for the president in Fox polls.

Obama holds an 11-point advantage over Romney among independent voters, a seven-point increase over last month. Still, only some 30 percent of those voters are undecided.

The president's lead also jumped among women, blacks and Democrats.
