Looking at the Numbers

President Obama’s approval numbers are creeping toward positive territory. Polls from Rasmussen and WaPo/ABC had him at 2 and 4 points net approval this morning.

And the President’s numbers against Romney seem to be tracking up too.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.
