Its pretty bad that he is still leading with the country in the state it is....Romney was definitely not the right choice to go up against him.....This Friday will be a big day for jobs numbers, I have a feeling this job report and the October job report will determine the election.....

As the presidential debates are set to kick off this week, Barack Obama continues to hold a modest national lead over Mitt Romney.  Here are the top-line numbers among likely voters in three new polls:

Washington Post/ABC News - Obama 49, Romney 47

Politico/GWU - Obama 49, Romney 47

Rasmussen - Obama 50, Romney 47 (includes leaners)

Digging a little deeper, the WaPo/ABC News poll shows a virtually-tied national race, but has Obama up...
