POLL: ROMNEY GAINS GROUND ON FOREIGN POLICY
TALK RADIO NEWS SERVICE
WASHINGTON - GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney has closed the gap between him and President Obama with regard to foreign policy issues.
According to a Pew Research Center poll released Thursday, Obama’s lead on foreign policy has slipped by more than ten percent following the attack in Benghazi, Libya that left four dead. Romney continues to lag behind Obama on foreign policy issues, trailing by a 43 to 47 percent margin, but that’s significantly better than the 15-point gap he saw in September.
Both candidates will have an opportunity to convince voters they have a firm handle on the nation’s security during the third and final presidential debate that will focus on foreign policy. During this week’s debate at Hofstra University in New York, moderator Candy Crowley dealt an inadvertent blow to Romney when she confirmed that the president referred to the attack as an “act of terror.”
Obama and Romney will likely face off once again over the administration’s handling of the situation in Libya that resulted in the death of U.S. ambassador Chris Stevens on Monday when CBS host of Face The Nation Bob Schieffer moderates the final presidential debate of this election season.
