Democracy Now: Romney Gains in National Poll After 1st Debate


Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has overtaken President Obama in a new national poll in the aftermath of their first debate last week. The Pew Research Center has Romney leading Obama by four points among likely voters after trailing him by 8 percent last month. The two are tied among registered voters at 46 percent, Obama’s lowest mark in the Pew poll in over a year. On Monday, Romney delivered a speech attacking President Obama’s foreign policy at the Virginia Military Institute.

Mitt Romney: “I know the president hopes for a safer, freer and more prosperous Middle East allied with us. I share this hope. But hope is not a strategy. We can’t support our friends and defeat our enemies in the Middle East when our words are not backed up by deeds, when our defense spending is being arbitrarily and deeply cut, when we have no trade agenda to speak of, and the perception of our strategy is not one of partnership but of passivity.”
