A new Quinnipiac poll finds President Obama leading Mitt Romney by three points nationally, 46% to 43%.
Key findings: “Married voters back Romney 51% to 38%, while unmarried voters back President Obama 54% to 34%. Among married voters, Romney leads 54% to 35% among men and 49% to 42% among women. Among single voters, Obama leads 47% to 38% among men and 60% to 31% among women.
Said pollster Peter Brown: “Although much has been made about the gender gap and how President Barack Obama’s lead among women fuels his campaign, the marriage gap is actually larger and more telling.”
