|President Obama's standing improves in today's projection update. Nationally, his job approval ticks up a bit this week, thanks in part to a 51% approval mark in today's Gallup
tracking poll. That's the first time the President's approval has surpassed 50% in almost a full year. In addition, the majority of battleground state polls continue to favor
Obama, including a couple that pull Virginia back into his column. With Old Dominion's flip back to blue,
the projected electoral vote count moves to 303-235. The popular vote projection now stands at
49.6% for Obama to 48.8% for Mitt Romney.
