Gallup Polling has Romney leading Obama. Shocker. Obama’s job performance would place Mickey Mouse ahead of Obama.

The former Massachusetts governor, emerging from a difficult and longer-than-expected Republican nomination battle, has the support of 47% of registered voters nationwide, while the president has the support of 45%. Two percent of voters said they supported another candidate, while 7% were undecided.
