Seemingly unfazed at being ousted from the Asian Athletics Association, scam-tainted Suresh Kalmadi on Monday said losing the presidential re-election bid to Qatar’s Dahlan Jumaan Al-Hamad has actually given him a chance to work at the “grassroots” level.
“I have no issues today and I congratulate Mr Al-Hamad for being elected as President. I am rather relieved that I will be able to work at the grassroots level in athletics,” Mr. Kalmadi said after losing the vote during the ongoing AAA Congress in Pune.

Fox News poll bucks across board trend by showing Romney marginally ahead of Obama

Washington -  A latest Fox News poll this week has Romney topping Obama by 46-44 percent as opposed to the ABC News poll last week, which showed Obama ahead by 51-44.

The close difference in the results have reportedly suggested that either it is a very ‘volatile race’ or probably different polling methods have been adopted, Politico44 reports.

However, this was only the second time since Romney was above Obama. The first time was November 2011, when he was also up by 2 percent points.

The poll results found 43 percent independents backing Romney and 37 percent Obama.

But, nearly 21 percent of voters were found as undecided or might not cast their vote for either of the major party candidates.

Earlier, White House Republican contender Newt Gingrich had blasted the channel for overt bias in favour of Romney, saying the American news channel has been biased towards former  Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney from the beginning of the Republican presidential fight.
“I think Fox has been for Romney all the way through,” Gingrich was quoted as saying during a private meeting with Delaware Tea Party leaders.
