NOW Today: Obama ahead in at least 6 swing states


This morning we’re waking up to a new NBC News/WSJ/Marist poll, and like the last set of data we shared in this space, the numbers show a growing divide in key battleground states between President Obama and Governor Mitt Romney.

In both Colorado and Wisconsin, the President is ahead 5 points, 50-45; in Iowa, the race is separated by 8 points, with the President ahead 50-42. Those spreads, now 46 days out from Election Day, spell bad news for Team Romney, made only worse when coupled with last week’s swing state poll numbers favoring the President in Florida, Ohio, and Virginia. Still, the Romney camp has a plan to stage a comeback.

We’ll break it all down on the show today - plus, a special segment on Alex’s talk yesterday with “The Lady,” Daw Aung San Suu Kyi.  See you at noon ET on NOW.
