President Barack Obama is ahead of probable GOP nominee Mitt Romney, according to a new Washington Post/ABC News national poll. Obama is ahead on womens, middle class, health care and international issues--even deemed more likable and inspiring--but the contest is competitive when it comes to who is best handling the economy.

From the Washington Post: "This Washington Post-ABC News poll was conducted by telephone April 5 to 8, among a random sample of 1,103 adults. The results have a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points. Sampling, data collection and tabulation by Abt-SRBI of New York. Numbers may not add to 100 percent because of rounding or "no opinion" not shown.. The Washington Post. Published on April 10, 2012, 12:01 a.m."
