    Anyone else notice the Presidents numbers have slipped significantly in the generla election polls?

    RealClearPolitics - Election 2012 - General Election: Romney vs. Obama

    RCP average has Obama by 1.8.

    On May 1st, Obama was up by 3.4... and on March 1st it was 4.5.

    'Slip sliding away', seems appropriate here.

    I imagine that polling will show a number of lead changes before the actual vote in November.
