Mitt Romney has jumped to a four-point national lead over President Barack Obama among likely voters – the first time the former Massachusetts governor has ever led by that much in surveys by the Pew Research Center.

In a new poll, Pew has the GOP challenger leading Democrat Obama, 49 to 45 percent, among likely voters. Last month, Romney was eight points behind the president.

But among registered voters, the race is tied at 46 percent – after Obama’s nine-point lead last month. The last time Romney broke even with Obama among registered voters in a Pew poll was almost a year ago, Pew said.

“Voters say Romney did a better job than Obama in the Oct. 3 debate, and the Republican is now better regarded on most personal dimensions and on most issues than he was in September,” Pew said. “Romney is seen as the candidate who has new ideas and is viewed as better able than Obama to improve the jobs situation and reduce the budget deficit.”

The Pew Research Center for the People & the Press surveyed 1,511 adults, including 1,201 registered voters, Oct. 4-7.
