And an ABC News/Washington Post poll also suggests that if the 2012 presidential election between the President and GOP challenger Mitt Romney were held today, Romney would hold a slight lead in the popular vote.

Editor's note: This story contains references to potentially offensive language reportedly used by politicians during the 2012 campaign.
