CBS/NYT Poll: Romney Moves Ahead of Obama

A new CBS News/New York Times poll said likely GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney has pulled ahead of President Barack Obama, though the results are within the survey’s margin of error, reflecting the closeness of the race.

The former Massachusetts governor is leading Obama 46-43 percent, the survey said. The same survey last month found Romney and Obama in a dead heat with 46 percent apiece.

The survey was conducted May 11.

Neither candidate has had more than a six-point lead since CBS News and The New York Times began conducting the head-to-head survey in January.

Nearly two-thirds of those surveyed, or 62 percent, named the economy as the most important issue to them, CBS News said, despite recent controversies over such issues like the president’s announced support for gay marriage.

“Concern over the budget deficit ranked a distant second at 11 percent, followed by health care at 9 percent. Seven percent picked same-sex marriage, 4 percent cited foreign policy and 2 percent chose immigration,” the survey said.

While most Americans believe the economy is in need of repair, respondents expressed the most optimism on the issue since January 2008, when the latest recession was near its peak.

Sixty-seven percent of respondents said they thought the economy was in bad shape, compared to just 36 percent who said they thought it was improving.
