    The race for Ohio’s Electoral College votes remains very close, but now Mitt Romney has a two-point advantage.

    The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Ohio Voters shows Romney with 50% support to President Obama’s 48%. One percent (1%) likes some other candidate, while another one percent (1%) remains undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

    Ohio remains a Toss-Up in the Rasmussen Reports Electoral College Projections. Based on the current projections, Romney would have to win Wisconsin if he loses Ohio in order to move into the White House.

    The candidates have been locked in a very tight battle in Ohio since August. A week ago, Romney and Obama were tied in the Buckeye State with 48% support each. This is the first time Romney has taken even a modest lead in the race.

    Nearly one-in-three Ohio voters (32%) have already cast their ballots. Obama leads 62% to 36% among these voters. Romney has a large lead among those who still plan to vote. The question of who wins Ohio may come down to whether enough Romney voters get to the polls on Election Day to overcome the president’s lead among early voters.

    Scott Rasmussen has noted that “Wisconsin May Be The New Ohio.”To win the election, Romney will have to win at least one of these two battleground states.

    Among all Ohio voters, Romney now has a 12-point lead over the president in voter trust – 53% to 41% - when it comes to the economy. Last week, he had just a seven-point advantage among voters in the state when they were asked which candidate they trusted more to deal with the economy...

    Well, their Dear Leader did sue Gallup. So, i guess if Polls don't give them the results they want, they just declare them invalid. It's angry denial for sure.

    We still have election day itself...there are a lot of folks who are old fashioned about their voting - or may not have the time until election day. Sit tight.

    Rasmusssen's method of polling predicted the win by O. in `08. Pew came in second with the prediction..

    However this Gallup has some news:

    Gallup: Obama's Early Vote Advantage Collapses 22-Points Over 2008

    My pal Guy Benson found a juicy nugget that helps to bring more clarity to the news from Gallup yesterday that shows Romney leading Obama in the early vote by a full seven points, 52-45%.

    Almost exactly four years ago (October 28, 2008), according to Gallup, Obama was massacring John McCain among early voters with a fifteen-point lead, 55-40%. That means, at least according to Gallup, that Obama's early vote advantage has dropped 22 points when compared to '08.

    NPR is a GOP shill organization, don't you know that? Anyone who shows Romney ahead is a GOP shill. OR so the libtards will say.
