State of the 2012 Race for the White House

We've had a busy week in the world of presidential polling with three new polls released yesterday.  Each of them shows the president holding a lead over the presumptive Republican nominee, Mitt Romney.  The leads vary from 12 points in the latest CNN poll to 4 points in the Reuters and Pew polls.  Now, those of you who know me understand that I don't put much stock in polls this far out from an election.  They are simply a snapshot of the electorate's mood at a given point in time.  That said, here's the latest picture of the polls.

Gallup has also begun reporting its daily tracking poll on the race between President Obama and Governor Romney.  Once we have enough data points I will post a graphic for that poll each week.  Currently, this poll has Mitt Romney leading President Obama by 5 points, 48-43.
