Obama leads Romney nationally, boosted by unmarried voters: Poll
Addis Ababa, July 12 (WIC) - President Barack Obama leads Mitt Romney nationally by a slim 46 to 43 margin, according to a poll released Wednesday morning by Quinnipiac University.
Obama's edge comes largely among unmarried voters, the poll found. He leads Romney 54 percent to 34 percent among the single voters polled, while Romney has a 51 to 38 advantage among married voters.
"Although much has been made about the gender gap and how President Barack Obama’s lead among women fuels his campaign, the marriage gap is actually larger and more telling,” Peter Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute, said in a statement.
He attributed the marriage gap to differences in age and financial security between the groups.
The results show little movement in the race since Quinnipiac's last national poll in April, when Obama led Romney by 46 percent to 42 percent. (www.huffingtonpost.com)
