Description

President Obama jumped ahead of a nameless Republican challenger in Gallup's monthly survey of the generic ballot. Registered voters shifted toward Obama over the last month, erasing the advantage a generic Republican challenger to the president had enjoyed over the two previous months. Forty-five percent of registered voters said they would pick Obama, versus 39 percent who would favor "the Republican Party's candidate." The generic GOP candidate had led Obama 47-39 percent in mid-July, and 44-39 percent in mid-June.
