Poll: Romney up 3 in Ohio, best showing since June
By Justin Sink - 09/05/12 08:25 PM ET
Mitt Romney has opened a 3-point lead in the pivotal swing state of Ohio, according to a new poll released Wednesday the Republican nominee's best showing since June.
The Republican ticket garnered support of 47 percent of those surveyed, versus 43 percent for Democrats, according to a poll released by Gravis Marketing. President Obama has led consistently in the polls since June, although that lead has been usually within the margin of error.
Meanwhile, 10 percent of voters remain unsure in the pivotal contest, or say they would back a third-party candidate.

Makes sense to me that you wouldn't directly compete with the press orgy that is the convention but mine it for goodies and have the last word. There have been a lot of goodies.
I just read today that NBC is reporting $4.5 million in Romney ad buys, including $1 million in Ohio.
He may have stopped for the convention week; but, it his ads will be back up next week, in droves.
I’m getting the vibe that Obama is toast.
I know the MSM will never offer up anything confirming it, but the thrill is gone.
When the Baraqqis start putting out feelers for purchasing POTUS pardons, we’ll know the game is over.....
The best news of this poll is the fact that O seems hopelessly stuck at 43%. There seem to be a bunch of polls showing the same range all over from what I can tell.
When the other party’s convention is on and is giving you more ammunition that you could have dreamed of, with sixty days till the election, why try to interrupt them? Wait to see how the internals poll out through this weekend and them hit them hard where it will be most effective. The way Obama is spending his (in the red) campaign funds he may be left standing with no paid air time and his thumb up his a** by mid-October.
After barry speaks tonight you will see the same thing in Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, New Hampshire, Florida, Virginia, Colorado, Iowa, North Carolina, Nevada, Connecticut, & Maine.
Romney doesn’t have to run any Ads this week, the DNC’s entire Convention is one huge GOP Ad. All Romney has to do is sit back, eat some popcorn, and watch the implosion. Next week he can make Ads of DNC delegates BOOING God and BOOING Israel, show those in all of the swing states, oh and also the one with the delegate caught on tape wanting Romney dead, that should be a good one too
ADP is reporting job gains of 200,000 in August, a pretty big number. The official Labor report comes out tomorrow. Get ready for an extended celebration by the communists / media. The recovery “on the right track” narrative will be put front and center 24/7. Romney needs to be prepared for this.
Kasich will be an asset to Romney in Ohio, as will Ryan, who went to college here.
Sounds right - they know who Obama is - he's been around for four years. Now they want to know who Romney is...
Especially since he hasn’t spent much money in Ohio yet according to another article I read today.
“Obamas previous lead over Romney of 45.3% to 44.4% has switched to a Romney lead of 46.8% to 43.7%. Although within the previous polls margin of error, the Republican convention appears to have given Romney a 2 point bump while taking 1 point from Obama. Switching to the Senate race, before the Republican convention, Democrat Sherrod Brown held a nar- row 43.6% to 41.4% lead over Republican Josh Mandel. Again, although within the margin of error, the post- convention poll gives Republican Mandel the advantage at 44.3% to 43.5%, representing a 3 point bump for Mandel, while Browns take staying basically constant.”
Financially the MSM has to make it look close or else no one would pay attention and watch them if they actually told the truth...
ADP is usually high and economy needs to produce 350K jobs to keep pace with population growth, so even this 200K is pathetic.
Boehner’s district is already conservative.
Your survey link does show a 3 point advantage to Romney.
R = 46.8
O = 43.7
Tourist season just got over. It's time for seasonal people to get laid off.
I don't see where those numbers would come from. Even manufacturing and shipping are down. Maybe they plan on "revising" the number after the convention so Oboma can use it in a speech? (No one will hear about the revisions later. They never make a big deal out of those.)
What's more important is how many LOST their jobs and are signing up for unemployment for the first time. Those are the people who are hurting. That's the number that really counts. It's always much, much bigger.
I agree that Ryan’s Miami University (Oxford) connections are a real selling point.
Miami U has tendrils in all of southwest Ohio counties in one way or another, and they are sitting right next door to Indiana, so there’s probably spillover there, too.
