The race between Republican Mitt Romney and President Obama remains razor-thin in Florida and Virginia while Mr. Obama retains a 6-point lead in Ohio, according to new NBC/Wall Street Journal/Marist polls.
A new Quinnipiac University/New York Times/CBS poll shows little change in the presidential race from before and after the first presidential debate, with President Obama holding a 5-point lead in Virginia and a 3-point lead in Wisconsin, while Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney holds a 1-point lead in Colorado.
President Obama said Wednesday he did not hand the election to Republican Mitt Romney with his poor debate performance last week.
American Crossroads, the super PAC linked to Republican operative Karl Rove, bought $7.3 million in air time and Internet ads opposing President Obama on Tuesday on top of more than $10 million last week, passing the original pro-Romney super PAC, Restore Our Future, to become the highest-spending outside group in the general election.
President Obama's latest explanation for his poor performance in last week's presidential debate is that he was "too polite" to Republican rival Mitt Romney.
Mitt Romney said Wednesday that the United States should play an "active role" in making sure the opposition forces in Syria force President Bashir Assad's regime from power — but stopped short of saying he would commit American troops to the conflict.
President Obama attended the 1991 wedding of Martha Raddatz, the ABC senior foreign correspondent who is moderating Thursday night's vice presidential debate, according to the online publication the Daily Caller.
A lot of hand-wringing has begun among Democrats after President Obama's widely-panned performance in last Wednesday's debate, and polls that show Republican challenger Mitt Romney gaining ground, but Jen Psaki, the Obama campaign's traveling press secretary, said Wednesday that wasn't the case for their team.
A conservative radio host based in central Virginia, has posted a video on his website of a GOP office with its window smashed in, expletive-laced rants presumably delivered at Republicans, and Mitt Romney/Paul Ryan signs torn down, defaced and smeared with what appears to be human excrement.
Mitt Romney's strong performance in the first presidential debate may have put Pennsylvania back in play, and closed the gap with President Obama in other battleground states.
Arizona Sen. John McCain on Tuesday was one of a number of Republicans scratching their heads over a new ad from the Obama campaign dripping with sarcasm that plays off GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney's pledge, reiterated during last week's presidential debate, to cut federal funding for PBS by portraying Big Bird as a conniving menace to society more dangerous than some of America's most famous financial frauds.
Democratic Heidi Heitkamp, once considered a long shot to win North Dakota's open Senate seat, is locked in a dead heat with GOP candidate Rep. Rick Berg, a new poll says.
If voters are right, Paul Ryan will easily out-debate Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. on Thursday.
An Obama campaign spokeswoman on Monday said the president simply was having a "light moment" when he decided to poke some fun at himself the night before, acknowledging at a star-studded fundraiser that he botched the first debate against Republican challenger Mitt Romney last week.
Two new polls on the Florida Senate race reveal significantly contrasting results, with one showing Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson with a double-digit lead over GOP challenger Rep. Connie Mack, while the other forecasts a dead heat.
