President Obama's standing in a trio of battleground states is improving, while GOP frontrunner Mitt Romney is struggling on the key test of favorability, two new polls show.
Quinnipiac University polled hypothetical general election matchups in the key general election states of Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania. In Florida, Obama leads Romney 49-42%; in Ohio, the lead is 47-41%. Pennsylvania is a closer battle, with Obama's 45-42% lead roughly equaling the margin of error.
Those three states account for 67 electoral votes toward the 270 a candidate needs to garner to win the election. Since 1960, no candidate has won the White House without winning two of those three key states.

Delusional as usual. What recovery?
Hotair.com had an interesting article about these polls, and the internals on them.
Obama is in trouble, even with these polls.
i didn’t go into the weeds to see exactly who was polled.
But I do know thee is NO recovery
and now that obama has made sure energy costs will “ necessarily skyrocktet” with his latest EPA rulings on coal Penn and especially Ohio. which gets over 80% of it’s energy from coal will NOT vote for 0dumbo
Doesn't matter. It's all about the appearance of recovery, and that's the narrative the "media" has been building all along.
Murder city’s newspaper, the world capital of corruption.
So...gas is $3.81 a gallon here ($1.85/gallon on the day of his crowning), milk is $5.50 to $6.29, bacon is 5.98 to $7.98, hamburger (worst 73/27) is $3.50/lb), and so on. All of the car dealerships here in town have at most 1/2 lot full (Chebby and Chrysler 1/4 to 1/3 full). Lots of empty store fronts still, my house is worth less than I paid for it, taxes haven’t gone down, ALL of my monthly services have gone up (gas, elect., water, phones, mobiles, entertainment, lawn service, security service, etc.) have increased...
Just how in the name of Cowboy Hell is the ‘economy’ recovering? Huh? When you piss on my leg, don’t say it is raining.
Open the files and trot out a “Yea, Obama, Happy Happy Joy Joy!” story on a day when he just took it up the shorts at the Supreme Court...
Uh, I don't think Hussein has a problem with "takin' it up the shorts".......it's not being able to implement his treachery is the problem.
I wonder if they have imaginary friends, too..
****ing liars... NOW PROVE ME WORNG YOU COMMIE BASTARDS!
My thoughts exactly.
Chicago Tribune; really? please, give us a break
The economy is deteriorating at a slower rate- for now.
If the media can portray that as ‘improving’ (in a way it is) then he’s in the clear.
If, meanwhile, nothing happens to re-accelerate that slow deterioration...
