A new independent poll shows President Obama opening a double-digit lead over Mitt Romney in Ohio.

The survey by Quinnipiac University gives the President a 53 percent to 43 percent lead in Ohio. That lead grows to 12 percent in Pennsylvania and shrinks to nine percent in Florida.

In all three states, more than half the respondents said they believed Romney’s policies favored the wealthy.

The poll by Quinnipiac University, CBS News and the New York Times had a margin of error of 2.8 percentage points in Florida and 2.9 percentage points in Ohio and Pennsylvania.
