Ohio Poll: Obama Leads By a Point

by Katrina Trinko

The Ohio Poll, which was sponsored by the University of Cincinnati, finds that among likely voters, President Obama is at 50 percent and Mitt Romney is at 48.5 percent. 

A Public Policy Polling poll found Obama ahead by 5 points, 52 percent to Romney’s 47 percent. But the partisan breakdown is plus 8 Democrat (the same advantage Democrats held in 2008): 43 percent Democrat, 35 percent independent, and 22 percent independent/other.
