A new poll of likely voters in Ohio, Florida, and Pennsylvania shows President Obama winning all three states, on the basis of his strength among women voters. But given voter concerns about the economy, Mitt Romney can still catch him.
Despite persistently high unemployment , President Obama is beating Republican candidate Mitt Romney in three key battleground states, Ohio, Florida, and Pennsylvania, according to a new Quinnipiac University/New York Times/CBS News poll.
In Ohio, Mr. Obama beats Mr. Romney among likely voters 50 percent to 44 percent. In Florida, Obama is ahead 51 percent to 45 percent. Obama has a wider lead in Democratic-leaning Pennsylvania, 53 percent to 42 percent. Since 1960, no one has won the White House without winning at least two of these states. Four years ago, Obama won all three.
