Poll: Romney in the lead of White House race
A new poll on the heels of the 1st US presidential debate has Republican Mitt Romney in the lead.
The survey from Pew Research Center has Romney at 49% support, Barrack Obama at 45%. The poll was done in the 3 days after the debate Romney is widely considered to have won.
Pew's last poll done in mid-September had the President at 51% support with Romney trailing at 43%.
In a speech on Monday, Romney attacked Obama's foreign policy, saying the President had made things worse in the Middle East.
Romney's running mate Paul Ryan also said Monday their administration would green-light the Keystone XL Pipeline project that would carry oil from Alberta to Texas on their 1st day in office.
Ryan will square off with Vice President Joe Biden in a debate on Thursday.
