New Quinnipiac University polls released Wednesday show President Obama with an edge over Mitt Romney in three key battleground states: Ohio, Pennsylvania and Florida. The poll notes a comparison to the May results, in which Obama had a lead in former two, but was too close to call in Florida.
The figures for the three states:
Florida: Obama edges Romney 45 – 41 percent;
Ohio: Obama over Romney 47 – 38 percent;
Pennsylvania: Obama tops Romney 45 – 39 percent.
“If he can keep those leads in all three of these key swing states through election day he would be virtually assured of re-election,” said Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute. But it should be noted (as it is in Quinnipiac’s analysis) that it’s not even July — so these numbers have a large window of time to fluctuate.
One strength Obama has in all three states is his recent “mini DREAM Act” measure regarding undocumented immigrants, which voters support, saying he’s better for the issue than Romney.
