    (CNN) - With a week and a half to go until Election Day, a new poll indicates the race for arguably the most important battleground state remains very close.

    According to a CNN/ORC International survey released Friday, President Barack Obama holds a four point advantage over Republican nominee Mitt Romney in the contest for Ohio's much fought over 18 electoral votes.

    Uh huh. Two days ago a Time poll came out showing Obama up five. I looked at the sample breakdown and it was D+10. :lol:

    This CNN poll doesn't provide their's. Shocking.

    CNN along with FOX News also headlined

    "Supreme Court Strikes Down Obamacare"

    4 point lead? sounds close to what others are saying, but on the high end.

    I personally think this is going to be the Election in which a Republican wins with out Ohio. The Most Recent poll in my own state of Michigan for example has it even a 47 each here. I think people are paying to close attention to Ohio and not enough to places like MI and PA.

    Michigan is going to go Democratic in spite of anecdotal evidence of confused voters in Republican leaning counties.

    There is no chance Michigan or Pennsylvania go for Romney without Ohio.

    As I already stated in Chris's exact same thread of this poll (love how nobody uses the search function), they didn't divulge their sample breakdown which makes me skeptical of these results. A TIME poll of Ohio came out a couple of days ago showing Obama up five, but when I looked up the sample breakdown it was D+10. Totally unrealistic turnout model.

    When I was with Kerry in 2004, I met a very wealthy Democrat who knew Mitt -- she said 'from the Country Club' She told me she and others like her would campaign for and vote for a Romney run. That was before the 2008 race. Now? I'd like to meet her again. She came to Boston with a Fleet of Autos from Detroit that were part of the Campaign. I met her away form the campaign at a place I was working at so she gave me advice without knowing who I knew.

    Interesting.
