    Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney holds a two-point lead against President Obama in a potential general election matchup, according to a new CBS News poll.

    The survey found that Romney is the only GOP candidate to hold a lead over the president in a hypothetical head-to-head matchup, though Texas Rep. Ron Paul trails by just one point.

    Both Romney's lead over Mr. Obama - 47 percent to 45 percent - and Mr. Obama's lead over Paul - 46 percent to 45 percent - are within the survey's three percentage point margin of error.

    The poll found Mr. Obama with leads of at least four points over the other major Republican presidential candidates. The president leads former Sen. Rick Santorum 47 percent to 43 percent; he leads Texas Gov. Rick Perry 49 percent to 42 percent; he leads former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman 48 percent to 41 percent; and he leads former Newt Gingrich 49 percent to 41 percent.

    The survey was taken from Jan. 4-8, in the wake of Romney's narrow victory over Santorum in the Iowa caucuses.

    Romney and Paul's relatively strong showings are driven by support from independent voters. Romney leads Mr. Obama by six points among independent voters, 45 percent to 59 percent, and Paul leads the president by seven points among independents, 47 percent to 40 percent. Independents favored Mr. Obama over the other GOP candidates.

    Polls change way too rapidly. Trust me, Mitt and Ron will fall. It's only a matter of time.

    Keep Telling yourself that. With nearly every move Obama Pisses more people off. He has another year yet in which to show yet more Stunning lack of Leadership, and Hyper Partisan Dishonest Governing style. I am sure he will win back all sorts of Independents by Playing with the Unemployment numbers and ignoring the Millions who have ran out of Benefits and close the gap, but Its not going to be a walk this time around. No hiding behind Lofty ideas, and Platitudes, This time he has to defend his Record.

    His record, while not perfect, has been pretty damn good.
