Poll: Romney Solidifies GOP Lead for 2012
WASHINGTON -- Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney has surged to a clear lead in the Republican race for the presidential nomination, but his party's attacks on President Obama's economic stewardship have yet to shake the president's lead over the GOP, according to a Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll released Wednesday.

At the same time, rising anxieties over the economy continue to erode the political environment for the president, pointing to a tight re-election fight.
