A new Quinnipiac University national survey conducted between Sept. 25 and Sept. 30 shows that President Barack Obama currently leads Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney by four percentage points.

A Gallup survey published this week reveals that the majority of voters still believe that the federal government is too much involved in the day-to-day activities of American individuals and businesses.

A new national poll conducted by The Associated Press and GfK between August 16 and August 20 suggests that around a quarter of registered voters have still to decide who they will be voting for on Nov. 6.

On the day President Barack Obama‘s senior adviser, David Axelrod, visited the Beacon Hill district of Boston to criticize Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney‘s record as Massachusetts governor, Mr. Romney held a secretly organized press conference in Fremont, Calif., in the vicinity of former solar panel manufacturer Solyndra‘s headquarters and factory.
Mitt Romney released over 500 pages of documents on Tuesday relating to his and his wife Ann’s tax affairs. The published material includes income tax returns for 2010, estimates for 2011, as well as filings regarding their charitable foundation, two blind trusts set up in the couple’s names, and a trust created for their children. The former Massachusetts governor’s decision came as the result of intense pressure from the Democrats, some of the Republican presidential candidates, and even some of his supporters, who are convinced his hesitation to release such documents played a big part in his defeat in the South Carolina primary last Saturday.
Winning Our Future, the super PAC backing former House Speaker Newt Gingrich‘s bid to become the Republican nominee, will release two new ads attacking former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney on Sunday.
