President Obama Leads in Swing States

By: Huffington  Post

Battle Ground StatesPresident Barack Obama holds a 5-point lead over Mitt Romney among likely voters in Florida and Virginia, and a 7-point lead in Ohio, according to polling released Thursday evening from NBC, the Wall Street Journal and Marist.

In Florida and Virginia, 49 percent of likely voters supported Obama, and 44 percent Romney. In Ohio, 50 percent supported Obama, and 43 percent backed Romney. Obama won all three states over Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) in 2008, but Florida especially would be a crucial win for Romney.

Obama has a 49 percent approval rating in Florida and Virginia, and 50 percent approval in Ohio, among likely voters.

“You’d rather be in Obama’s shoes than Romney’s in these three critical states,” Marist's Lee Miringoff told NBC, cautioning that the president's lead is not "insurmountable."

Most likely voters said they had made up their minds, with only 2 percent in each state saying their choice might change come Election Day.
