Sunday Roundup: Obama Leads Early Voting, Gay Marriage Allies Seek 1st Win at Polls, GOP Outspends Dems

Sunday’s Quick Clicks for your enjoyment!!

1. Obama Grabs Wide Lead Among Early Voters – “President Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney are neck and neck in opinion polls, but there is one area in which the incumbent appears to have a big advantage: those who have already cast their ballots.  Obama leads Romney by 59 percent to 31 percent among early voters, according to Reuters/Ipsos polling data compiled in recent weeks.”  http://news.yahoo.com/obama-grabs-wide-lead-among-those-already-voted-050814783.html

2. At 0-32, Gay Marriage Proponents Seek 1st Victory at Polls – “Dating back to 1998, 32 states have held votes on same-sex marriage, and all 32 have opposed it. Maryland is one of four states with Nov. 6 referendums on the issue — and gay-marriage advocates believe there’s a strong chance the streak will be broken.  In Maryland, Maine and Washington, it’s an up-or-down vote on legalizing same-sex marriage. In Minnesota, there’s a measure to place a ban on gay marriage in the state constitution, as 30 other states have done previously.”  http://news.yahoo.com/0-32-gay-marriage-forces-seek-1st-win-121123206.html

3. GOP Outspends Democrats on TV Advertising – “When it comes to spending on political ads, money isn’t everything.  Data from Kantar Media’s CMAG, an ad tracking firm, showed that during the week of Oct. 4-Oct. 11 Mitt Romney, the RNC and Republican outside groups combined to outspend President Obama and his allies on on TV ads by about $5 million – $31.6 million to $28.05 million.  Even so, the Democrats had more about 5,000 more ads on television.  How is this possible?”  http://news.yahoo.com/republicans-outspend-democrats-tv-advertising-fewer-ads-show-122613333–abc-news-politics.html
