President Barack Obama is ahead of probable GOP nominee Mitt Romney, according to a new Washington Post/ABC News national poll. Obama is ahead on womens, middle class, health care and international issues–even deemed more likable and inspiring–but the contest is competitive when it comes to who is best handling the economy.
