Poll Gives President Nine-Point Lead In Ohio
A new independent poll of Ohio voters gives President Obama a nine-point lead over GOP challenger Mitt Romney.
The survey by Quinnipiac University says 47 percent of likely Ohio voters now favor the President, compared to 38 percent support for Romney, the former Governor of Massachusetts and the presumptive Republican nominee.
“The horse race numbers reflect the general view of voters that they like the president better,” said Quinnipiac pollster Peter Brown.
“Obama has a net favorable view among Ohio voters and he is viewed evenly by those in (other key swing states) Pennsylvania and Florida, while Romney’s favorable/unfavorable ratio is negative in all three states.”
The survey gives the President an even larger lead among women, African-Americans, and younger voters.
