Veteran journalist Carl Hoffman believes he’s solved one of the great mysteries of the 20th century. In 1961 at the age of 23, Michael Rockefeller – son of New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller and a member of one of the richest and most powerful families in America ¬– travelled to remote New Guinea in search of primitive art for his father’s new museum.
Poll Gives President Nine-Point Lead In Ohio
A new independent poll of Ohio voters gives President Obama a nine-point lead over GOP challenger Mitt Romney.
The survey by Quinnipiac University says 47 percent of likely Ohio voters now favor the President, compared to 38 percent support for Romney, the former Governor of Massachusetts and the presumptive Republican nominee.
“The horse race numbers reflect the general view of voters that they like the president better,” said Quinnipiac pollster Peter Brown.
“Obama has a net favorable view among Ohio voters and he is viewed evenly by those in (other key swing states) Pennsylvania and Florida, while Romney’s favorable/unfavorable ratio is negative in all three states.”
The survey gives the President an even larger lead among women, African-Americans, and younger voters.
