President Barack Obama holds a 3-point lead over Mitt Romney among registered voters nationwide, according to a new poll released Thursday.
The latest installment from AP/Gfk shows Obama earning the support of 47 percent of American voters, while Romney trails with 44 percent. That's a far cry from Wednesday's Bloomberg poll, which showed Obama with a surprising 13-point edge over the presumptive Republican nominee. The AP/Gfk survey illustrates a sharp divide among voters over which candidate would do more to repair the nation's economy: 46 percent believe Obama would do a better job handling the economy, compared with 45 percent who think Romney is a better choice on that front.
The PollTracker Average currently shows Obama with a 1.7 percentage point advantage over Romney.
