Presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney has made strong gains with independents in 12 key battleground states that will be crucial in determining who wins the White House in 2012, according to the latest poll from Purple Strategies, reports The Hill.

Although President Barack Obama leads Romney 48 percent to 44 in the 12 battleground states of Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Minnesota, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Wisconsin, Romney holds a slight lead over the president with men.

Another bright spot for Romney: His favorability rating has risen drastically since the same poll taken last month. In March, a scant 27 percent said they had a favorable view of Romney, but the numbers took a 20-point upswing in April, with 38 percent saying they had a favorable view of the former Massachusetts governor.

Romney has also wrenched the lead from Obama among independent voters in the battleground states polled leading 46 percent to 44.

The poll surveyed 1,700 likely voters in 12 swing states and has a 4 percent margin of error.
