President Obama’s post-convention bounce continues unabated according to the latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News/Marist polls. The president leads his Republican challenger, Mitt Romney in three, critical swing states: Ohio, Florida and Virginia.
Ohio: Obama 50%, Romney 43%
Florida: Obama 49%, Romney 44%
Virginia: Obama 49%, Romney 44%
From the poll:
“These three states represent three of the most crucial battlegrounds in the 2012 presidential election. According to NBC’s electoral map, Mitt Romney likely needs to capture at least two of these states, if not all three, to secure the 270 electoral votes necessary to win the presidency.”
