    (CNN) - President Barack Obama holds a nine-point lead over Republican challenger Mitt Romney thanks in part to the perception that the president is more likeable and more in touch with the problems facing women and middle class Americans, according to a new national poll.

    A CNN/ORC International poll released Monday also indicates a large gender gap that benefits Obama, but the public is divided on which candidate can best jump-start the economy.

    According to the poll, 52% of registered voters say if the presidential election were held today, they would vote for the president, with 43% saying they would cast a ballot for Romney, the former Massachusetts governor who is making his second bid for the White House. The poll was conducted Friday through Sunday, a few days after former Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania suspended his bid for the GOP nomination. Even though former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and Rep. Ron Paul of Texas continue their long-shot bids for the nomination, Romney is now generally considered the presumptive nominee.

    The survey indicates women voters back Obama over Romney by 16 points (55%-39%), virtually unchanged from an 18-point advantage among women for the president in CNN polling last month.

    The only poll that counts comes up in November when people actually vote for one or the other. All these in-between-then-and-now polls are bullshit, constructed by one side or the other with bias in the sampling to allow each side to appear to be the winning band wagon. Your poll was likely taken from a sampling of Democrats.

    Gallup Poll Romney ahead President Obama | TPM2012

    This is bad news for you Chris since Romney has been the Unofficial Nominee for only a few days. Typically it takes supporters of the other candidates longer then that to get behind the winner. But enjoy the day, this is going to get ugly for you. And Obama' brought it all on himself...

    The Tin Man will fall. But don't lose faith. His wife can still stay at home with their children. It is very "dignified" for her to be at home, unlike wefare moms who should be seeking the "dignity of a job" outside the home. Gas prices have peeked and the economy is improving. BAD NEWS GOP!
