New Head to Head Polls

A couple of general election polls came out last night prior to Mitt Romney’s New Hampshire victory. One shows Romney leading President Obama, and the other has him behind by five points. These should be taken with a grain of salt as the polls portray Ron Paul as a viable candidate. Also, the polls were taken between 1/4 and 1/8, so they don’t fully reflect Friday’s employment data or the late attacks on Romney by his rivals.  Both polls were of registered voters.
