Polls: Obama up in Ohio, near-tie in Florida
Another poll gives President Obama a solid lead over Republican Mitt Romney in Ohio, the state that many observers believe could decide Tuesday’s election.
Obama leads Romney by 51% to 45% in the Buckeye State, according to an NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Marist poll.
No Republican has ever won a presidential race without carrying Ohio; many Obama aides believe an Ohio win would seal re-election.
Both candidates plan Ohio appearances in the campaign’s final 72 hours.
