Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney’s Denver debate performance has boosted him ahead of President Barack Obama, according to a stunning new poll by the Pew Research Center released Monday.
“Among likely voters, Romney holds a slight 49% to 45% edge over Obama. … [Romney] has drawn even with Obama in the presidential race among registered voters (46% to 46%) after trailing by nine points (42% to 51%) in September,” Pew’s analysis stated.
Romney jumped from 32 percent to 42 percent among votes younger than 30, gained 11 points among people with some college education and lost 2 points among people with no college education.
