President Barack Obama leads Mitt Romney among likely voters nationwide, according to a new poll released Monday.
A survey conducted by Democratic firm Greenberg Quinlan Rosner on behalf of Democracy Corps shows Obama earning the support of 50 percent of likely voters, while trails with the support of 46 percent. The president's job approval rating also reaches the 50 percent plateau in Monday's poll. Among those surveyed, 50 percent approve of the job Obama is doing, compared with 46 percent who disapprove.
The PollTracker Average shows Obama's approval rating still underwater —46.8 percent approve while 49.4 disapprove — although it has improved markedly in 2012.
