    Swing States poll: Romney and Obama tied; Gingrich trails.


    Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney essentially ties Barack Obama in the nation's key battlegrounds, a USA TODAY/Gallup Swing States survey finds, while rival Newt Gingrich now trails the president by a decisive 14 percentage points.

    That reflects a significant decline by the former House speaker since early December, when he led Obama by three points.

    The poll of the dozen states likely to determine the outcome of November's election addresses the electability argument that has driven many Republicans: Which GOP contender has the best chance of denying Obama a second term?

    In a head-to-head race, Romney leads Obama by a statistically insignificant percentage point, 48%-47%, the survey finds.

    But Obama leads Gingrich, 54%-40%. The president's standing against him has risen nine points since early December; Gingrich has fallen by eight.

    Gingrich fares less well than Texas Rep. Ron Paul, who trails Obama by seven points, 50%-43%, and former Pennsylvania senator Rick Santorum, who also trails by seven points, 51%-44%.

    I don't think it's the cakewalk for Obama so many on the Left keep boasting about. Obama has some real problems.

    Many on the Left are boasting about it being a cakewalk for Obama if he runs against Mitt Romney. And you're free to post any Poll you choose. So go for it. :)

    I thought Gallup's polls didn't matter? What's Rasmussen have to say?

    Obama is toxic waste to Moderates and Jews

    The margin for Mitt Romney will widen once Obama is exposed in the debates. Obama had it easy with McCain.

    Obama also seems to want a fight with the 69 million Catholics. Go figure that one.
