Cheer Up! Romney Rebounding in Swing States

Breaking from Quinnipiac this morning:

Riding the voter perception that he is as good as or better than President Barack Obama at fixing the economy, Republican challenger Mitt Romney catches up with the president in Florida and Ohio, two critical swing states, while the president opens an 8-point lead in Pennsylvania, according to a Quinnipiac University Swing State Poll released today.

•  Florida:  Romney with 44 percent to Obama’s 43 percent, too close to call;

•   ; Ohio:  Obama with 44 percent to Romney’s 42 percent, too close to call;

•    Pennsylvania:  Obama tops Romney 47 – 39 percent.
