Romney gaining in foreign policy, poll shows

Mitt Romney has shrunk President Obama’s advantage on foreign policy, according to a Pew Research Center survey published on Thursday, pulling within 4 points of the incumbent after trailing by 15 last month.

In the poll of 1,201 registered voters, 47 percent said Obama can do a better job making wise foreign policy decisions, while 43 percent said Romney can do better. Obama led by 1 on Iran and 5 on Egypt and Libya, but Romney claimed a 9-point edge on China.
