Obama Leads Romney in Polls Of
Ohio, Florida and Pennsylvania




WASHINGTON:
Three new Quinnipiac University polls released on Wednesday show President Barack Obama leading presumptive Republican challenger Mitt Romney in Ohio, Florida and Pennsylvania.The Quinnipiac polls find evidence of movement since May in Obama's direction in Ohio and Florida and voter support for Obama's newly announced immigration policy, particularly in Florida.

The new Florida survey is the second from the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute in June, and both give Obama a lead of four percentage points over Romney: 45 percent to 41 percent on the just completed survey and 46 percent to 42 percent on a poll conducted two weeks earlier. These results represent a reversal from a Quinnipiac poll in mid-May that showed Romney leading by six points (47 percent to 41 percent).

Polls by other organizations in May showed a mix of results: three had Obama slightly ahead, and one gave Romney the advantage. When combined in the HuffPost Pollster Florida chart, the combined trend lines show a continuing Obama edge of just under one percentage point (45.5 percent to 44.6 percent). Unless and until other polls confirm the slightly bigger lead measured by Quinnipiac, Florida should be considered a toss-up.

In Ohio, Quinnipiac gives Obama a nine-point advantage over Romney (47 percent to 38 percent), the biggest lead shown by any poll since February and a big gain from the last Quinnipiac poll in early May, which showed Obama with just a one-point lead. An automated Ohio survey released on Tuesday by Public Policy Polling, a firm that conducts surveys for local Democratic candidates, showed Obama leading by a smaller margin (47 percent to 44 percent).

Nevertheless, the HuffPost Pollster Ohio chart shows Romney gaining in Ohio and the trend lines converging, because of two surveys conducted in late May by Purple Strategies and Rasmussen Reports that each gave Romney a slight edge. As with Florida, the Ohio chart's trend lines give Obama an advantage of less than one percentage point (46.2 percent to 45.4 percent), again well within the toss-up range.

In Pennsylvania, the new Quinnipiac survey shows Obama with a six-point lead over Romney (45 percent to 39 percent). Fifteen surveys have been conducted so far this year by six different pollsters, and all but one have shown Obama leading. The current HuffPost Pollster chart for Pennsylvania gives Obama a lead over Romney of just over eight percentage points (47.3 percent to 39.1 percent).

Still early, but if all the Dems dropping out of their big convention is any indication seems the Dem party is having a few internal issues about associating with Obama in an election year.

Yeah that seems to happen to all presidents. I can't even imagine waking up every morning knowing I am the president. Very stressful job indeed. All the speeches you have to make and TV on top of everything else.

Well as far as Florida goes it has always been a swing (toss-up) state. You never know until election day which way Florida will go. Its been on both sides of the fence many times.

Oh yes lets sing the praise of a president who has closed many small businesses, forced business to go over seas (oil industry for example ) now with the health care passing more Dr.s will leave, in 2014 you are ordered to have medical coverage or pay a fine. He never served a day in the military, he had a very poor record on voting as a Senator and more than any other president he has divided this country. He has refused to act upon immigration and the Nat. debt is going off the charts. At least the voter purge in Fla. is continuing ( would hate to see dead people still voting ) Lets see how happy people are when the new taxes hit, medical coverage is limited and perscriptions are so expensive you can't afford them. Medicade will be history, but his ad for Food Stamps is a winner, don't you know according to the WH food stamps make you look better (words from their commercial) Let the dems enjoy the spending spree, China has alot of money.
