A new poll from the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press shows that Mitt Romney has made large gains on President Obama on the issue of foreign policy. Obama still leads Romney, with 47 percent of respondents saying the president would do a better job on foreign policy, compared with 43 percent for Romney. However, Romney trailed Obama by a whopping 15 percentage points as recently as September, once again showing the huge lift the GOP candidate received from his strong performance in the first presidential debate. Obama and Romney are scheduled to face off on foreign policy in the third debate on Monday.
