Poll: Obama With A Surprising 13-Point Lead Over Romney

President Barack Obama has a surprising double-digit lead over presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney, according to a new poll released Wednesday.

The results of the latest poll from Bloomberg run counter to virtually every other poll of the 2012 presidential race, which has long been considered to be a neck-and-neck contest.  But Bloomberg’s poll shows Obama earning the support of 53 percent of likely voters, while Romney trails with 40 percent.  

The PollTracker Average still shows a a tight race, with Obama currently edging Romney by about 4-points.
