Ohio Polls Give Obama Edge
Listen to the Story
Two new independent polls, just released ThursdayÂ indicate President Barack Obama remains ahead of his Republican challenger Mitt Romney here in the key swing state of Ohio.
First there’s the Quinnipiac University poll of likely Ohio voters which says the President is ahead of Romney 50% to 44%….the exact same margin from a poll 3 weeks ago.
In other words, Romney’s pick of Congressman Paul Ryan as his running mate has given the GOP ticket no bounce here, even though it apparently has helped just a bit in Florida and Wisconsin.
In Ohio, the Quinnipiac poll credits a 13 point edge for the President among women as a key strength for him while Independent voters favor Romney by 5.
Pollsters at the University of Cincinnati also find an overall edge for the President among likely Ohio voters, but it’s a 3 point edge and that’s justÂ below the poll’s margin of error.
