The June 2012 Franklin & Marshall College Poll finds President Barack Obama with a comfortable lead over his Republican challenger Mitt Romney.
The president enjoys significant advantages over Romney in his personal popularity and most voters believe he is better prepared to handle the presidency even though they are ambivalent about some of his major policy initiatives.

Meanwhile, a conservative SuperPAC called Crossroads GPS is hitting Obama on spending in a 32-second commercial called "Stopwatch," according to PoliticsPa.
The ad blasts Obama over his 2008 presidential campaign pledge to curb spending in the U.S.
Crossroads GPS said it will spend $727,000 on its latest ad in Pennsylvania as a part of its $2.3 million advocacy effort in the state.
The Franklin & Marshall College Poll is produced in conjunction with the Philadelphia Daily News, WGAL-TV (South Central PA), Pittsburgh Tribune Review, WTAE‐TV (Pittsburgh), WPVI‐TV6/ABC (Philadelphia), Times-Shamrock Newspapers, Harrisburg Patriot‐News, and Lancaster Newspapers.
