For the first time since he’s become the presumptive nominee, Mitt Romney has topped President Obama in a general election poll.

The Fox News poll only has Romney edging Obama by two points, so it is within the margin, but the poll comes on the heels of a tough week for the White House, as the Romney campaign is burying them on the comment made by DNC adviser Hilary Rosen. Obama quickly distanced himself from the comment, but the statement creates an opening for Romney in one of his weakest areas – female voters.

The Romney campaign pounced on the issue immediately, with Ann Romney unleashing her first tweet of the election: “I made a choice to stay home and raise five boys. Believe me, it was hard work.”

Boom.
