    “If today were November 6, President Barack Obama would sweep the key swing states of Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania and – if history is any guide – into a second term in the Oval Office,”





    Obama hits 50 percent in Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania - POLITICO.com


    By BYRON TAU | 8/1/12 6:19 AM EDT


    President Obama is above the 50 percent threshold against Mitt Romney in three key swing states among likely voters, according to a new survey.

    A new Quinnipac/CBS/NYT poll shows Obama beating Romney 53 percent to 42 percent in Pennsylvania, 50 percent to 44 percent in Ohio, and 51 percent to 45 percent in Florida.

    Obama wins the male vote in Florida 50 to 46 percent — a demographic where he has largely trailed. In Ohio, voters remain split on who would better handle the economy — with 46 percent picking Obama and 45 percent picking Romney. However, 37 percent say Romney's economic policies would hurt them more than they help. Twenty-six percent say they would help, while 34 percent saw no difference.

    And in Ohio, 51 percent of voters would like to see more of Romney's tax returns — an issue that has dogged him on the trail.

    “If today were November 6, President Barack Obama would sweep the key swing states of Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania and – if history is any guide – into a second term in the Oval Office,” Peter Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute, said in a release. The pollsters noted that no president since 1960 had won without carrying at least two of those three states.

    The survey also measured support for Obama's latest policy proposal — a push to raise taxes on incomes over $250,000 by letting the Bush tax cuts expire. The poll found wide support for Obama's proposal across all three states. Obama's tax plan is supported 58 percent to 37 percent in Florida, 60 percent to 37 percent in Ohio and 62 percent to 34 percent in Pennsylvania.

    'Among registered voters, the NYT/CBS poll also oversamples Democrats and Independents: D-33/R-27/I-41. There's no way the 2012 electorate will only be made up of 27% Republicans.

    Regardless, the media keeps telling us that those precious Independents will decide the election and that those precious Independents despise negative campaigning. Well, if that's the case…

    Among these over-sampled Independents, Obama is in real trouble -- upside down in all of the most important categories: job approval 35/49, economic job approval 31/61, favorability 28/52. Romney's beating Obama by a full 12 points among Independents and has a favorability rating of +1, 32/31.'

    Clearly, the president is in the drivers seat!!!:rock::rock::rock:


    Look........everything is trending Romney since the beginning of the spring in the polls that matter ( registered voters/likely voter polls ). Obama is consistently at 45%, give or take a point for a long time now. Undecideds ALWAYS go to the challenger by a huge margin. Incumbents under 50% never win in a general and especially in a lousy economy. ( with more hideous news coming on Friday, by the way:eusa_dance:)

    the undecideds went overwhelmingly to President Kerry...

    Horrible economy, high unemployment, stagnant GDP.....I don't think so. Their polls are skewed towards democrat voters anyway.
