Here's the trend chart for Obama v. Romney. The current TPM Poll Average shows Obama 6.2 percentage points ahead of Romney.

These numbers come as Romney's favorability numbers are moving down rapidly. And this morning's WaPo/ABC poll shows that by a 2 to 1 margin, the more people find out about Romney the less they like him.

Meanwhile, President Obama also seems to be tracking up in some key swing states like New Hampshire.
