Current polling detailing the 2012 race for the White House between presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama (above) should be met with scrutiny.
My guess (and itís purely a guess and therefore not worth much) is that Obama holds a narrow lead over Romney, probably in the low-to-middle single digits. That lead could well shrink during the next couple of months, but even if it doesnít, the general election is likely to be close if jobs and gas prices continue to be problems for the White House.
In any case, my advice is clear: Donít treat any survey as if it has a monopoly on the truth.
