    While Republican presidential candidates battle each other ahead of Tuesday's primary in Ohio, a new polls shows President Obama ahead of all them in the Buckeye State.

    Obama leads Mitt Romney 50-38% in Ohio, with the other 12% undecided, according to a new NBC News/Marist Poll.

    The president enjoys a 50-36% lead over Rick Santorum, and a 51-36% advantage over Newt Gingrich, the poll adds.

    Ron Paul comes closest to Obama, trailing the president by a margin of 48-38%.

    It's hard to see any Republican dislodging Obama from the White House without winning Ohio.

    And in Virginia....

    Among Virginia’s registered voters:

    ■Obama receives 52% to 35% for Romney. 12% are undecided.
    ■53% favor Obama compared with 32% for Paul. 15% are undecided.
    ■Obama has a 22 percentage point lead against Santorum. Here, Obama garners 54% to 32% for Santorum. 15% are undecided.
    ■Obama — 57% — leads Gingrich – 31%. 13% are undecided.
    In each of these hypothetical contests, Obama leads his potential GOP challengers among independents by double digits.

    “President Obama is getting now what he got in Virginia four years ago,” says Dr. Lee M. Miringoff, Director of The Marist College Institute for Public Opinion. “The Republican primary battle is clearly taking its toll on the GOP candidates. They are losing the fight for independent voters.”

    Tell me something Chris. Why do you think polls 8 months before the election matter?
