Gaining General Election Ground
New NBC/Marist poll finds President leads Romney in Iowa and shrinks the Bay Stater’s 9-point New Hampshire advantage from Oct. survey.
IA: Obama 46 — Romney 39
NH: Romney 46 — Obama 43
Iowa poll conducted Nov. 27 — 29, 2011. Margin of error 1.8 points.
New Hampshire poll conducted Nov. 28 — 30, 2011. Margin of error 2.1 points.
Make no mistake: these are very good numbers for the White House. Along with Friday's jobs numbers, these digits will help create a new Obama-is-the-favorite conventional wisdom.
