A new independent poll says Mitt Romney and President Obama are running neck and neck in the key swing states of Ohio, Florida and Pennsylvania.

The poll from Quinnipiac University says among Ohio’s registered voters, the President leads Romney by a 45 to 42 percent margin. It also says Mr. Obama leads all other GOP contenders by at least 10 points.

In the GOP primary race, Herman Cain gets 25 percent support compared to Romney’s 20 percent, Newt Gingrich at 11 percent, Congressman Ron Paul at 9 percent, and Rick Perry and Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann tied at 4 percent each.
