Today’s Good News for Obama: While other polls are fluctuating, Obama is still maintaining a steady lead in Nevada. Yesterday’s PPP poll showed Obama leading Romney 51-47—exactly the same as the PPP poll two weeks earlier. In fact, since the debates, Obama’s approval rating has only increased, from 49 percent to 52 percent.
