Exit Polls: Romney Likely to Win Ohio

As Republican voters headed to the polls in 10 states on Tuesday, exit polls showed that Mitt Romney is likely to win the key battleground state of Ohio and indicated that voters in all the states say gas prices and the economy are the top concerns. A Quinnipiac poll showed Romney with 34 percent support in the Buckeye State, with Santorum trailing with 31 percent. Only four out of 10 Ohio voters said they strongly backed their candidate, and the electorate in that state is more educated and higher-income than in 2008. Meanwhile, Newt Gingrich held a lead as the candidate in his home state of Georgia as the most likely to beat President Obama—a sign that Gingrich could pick up the lead there.
