Conventional Wisdom in DC dictates that Obama should easily win reelection.  Yet, a new Washington Post Poll has him losing to Romney by 49% to 47%.  Obama had previously led Romney by a significant amount in the last Washington Post poll.  The culprit?  Only 26% approve of his handling of gas prices, while 65% disapprove of the man who won’t allow us to drill for oil.  This coincides with the latest Rasmussen poss which has Obama trailing Romney by 3 and leading Paul by just 1.
