Throughout most of this election, President Obama has held a sustained, though small, advantage over Mitt Romney. Despite presiding over an unemployment rate that hasn’t dipped below 8%, Obama has continued to chip away at his opponent, and the latest polls show him expanding his lead in the crucial swing states. In dismissing 47% of the American population, and getting caught saying so, Romney unwittingly shot himself in the foot and is now paying dearly for it.

In most national polls, Obama has taken a comfortable lead:

Gallup: Obama 50%, Romney 44%

Reuters/Ipsos: Obama 49%, Romney 42%

Fox News: Obama 48%, Romney 43%

Rasmussen: Obama 46%, Romney 46%
