Posted on 03/28/2012 11:53:27 AM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer
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...
Economy improving stories remind me of the Bugs Bunny cartoons where a plane is heading for the ground to crash and is saved at the last minute by running out of gas.
Economy improving no one left to layoff
Economy improving everyone is on welfare
Economy improving food stamp office hires greeter
Economy improving in Sanford Florida (gun sales through the roof)
The OPEC countries are doing well thanks to Obama.
What improving economy??? Is Michael MEMORYLASPE, comparing our ‘improving’ economy to GREECE?? This Zombie writer is another LIBERAL trying to get the Moron in Chief re-elected.
According to the White House Insider Obama’s internal polling indicates he’s down 10 points from these external polls.
Other polls that are more credible have said that an improving economy will not help Obama because voters believe it is improving depsite Obama, not because of Obama — so they believe Obama in the White House will continue to hold them back. Quinnipiac, of course, is always tilted to the left.
Ben is keeping the printing presses running overtime at the Fed Reserve.
Whew! Where do you live anyway? California?
Here our commodities aren’t too bad (Milk $2.50-$3.50, Ground Beef $2.89, gas $ 4.09), but the utilities have gone up quite a bit.
What entertainment? Lawn service? ROFL We ARE the lawn service.
North Georgia. Those prices were from my last trip to Walmart, although the higher milk price is Mayfield whole milk.
I also cut my own grass but I do use TRUGREEN for weed control. NONE of the other homes around me in this subdivision do anything about weeds except one. Their spores/seeds are like the illegal Mexicans - too many for me to control ergo TRUGREEN.
As for the entertainment, I have Netflix , OTA and DIRECTV and will dump them when my upgrade runs out.
liars and obama apologists.
