Obama Leading in Ohio, Florida

The Washington Post is out with two new polls that see President Obama leading Mitt Romney in both Ohio and Florida—two key battleground states. Of likely voters in Ohio, 52 percent said they support Obama versus 44 percent who are in favor of Romney. The president’s edge in Florida is a bit slimmer, leading Romney among likely voters 51–47 percent. Last week the Post published a poll revealing that Obama is ahead in Virginia. A majority of campaign funds from both candidates have been spent on Ohio, Florida, and Virginia, and, according to analysts, it will take capturing at least two of those three states for him to have a shot at winning the presidency.
