Obama’s Ahead in Key States

Voters in Ohio, Florida, and Pennsylvania are leaning currently toward President Obama because of his personal appeal, according to a new slew of polls from Quinnipiac University, The New York Times, and CBS News. When it comes to the economy, the issue that Mitt Romney has championed in this election, voters surveyed in those same battleground states assess the president and his Republican challenger pretty evenly. The New York Times argues that whoever wins the general election should win at least two of the three key states polled—Obama won all three in 2008. It seems the president's advertising campaign is working in Ohio, at least, where voters said they think Romney's experience is too narrow to be able to create jobs for the country.
