With Superior Ground Operations, Obama Widens His Lead In Ohio By Holly Bailey, Yahoo! News
BEDFORD HEIGHTS, OhioFor Mitt Romney's campaign, the location was nothing more than a friendly business that had agreed to host a rally to promote the candidate's policies toward small businesses and manufacturing.
But it was hard not to view Romney's midday appearance at American Spring Wire, a company that makes wire that bounces back into place, as a possible metaphor for the candidate's electoral hopes in this crucial swing state.
"It goes right back to where it started," Romney told a crowd of several hundred people here, explaining how spring wire works.
He's hoping the same can be said of his race in this state. The Republican candidate's impromptu tutorial came as a series of new polls found that after months of a close race here between President Barack Obama and Romney, the GOP's chances in Ohio appear to be slipping away.
A New York Times/CBS News/Quinnipiac poll released on Wednesday found Obama leading Romney among likely Ohio voters by 10 points, 53 percent to 43 percent. It came on the heels of a Washington Post poll released on Tuesday that found Obama besting Romney by 8 points in the state.
They were the third and fourth polls in a row to find Obama expanding his lead in the Buckeye Statea move that prompted ABC News to change its projection of Ohio being a "toss up" state in November to one that "leans Obama."
As Romney spoke, Obama was campaigning on the other side of the state, holding his own rally at Bowling Green State University. There, the president lit into his Republican opponent, accusing Romney of wanting to gut education by giving wealthy Americans a tax cut.

The Romney campaign leaders like Ed Gillespie, Stuart Stevens, and Reince Priebus RNC Chair, as blue-blood Republicans have no clue on how to fight a blood and guts trench warfare game.
Sack this team, do a major campaign ad buy and enough of the economic graphs (its not working). Speak to gay marriage, booing God, and show images of burning embassies and coffins arriving , and you'd have the Reagan Democrats back on your side.
Yeah, this is why Obama is spending all his time in Ohio.
why do you believe the lame stream media reports???? People in Ohio say the ground game is on and he conservatives are out in force.
DOn’t panic and believe the lies. Just hunker down and work harder to make sure that O is defeated
I live in Ohio and can’t understand this at all. Why the hell anybody, except holder’s people, would vote for Obama is beyond my comprehension.
Rasmussen has it Obama 47%, Romney 46%.
Why are you selling the Kool Aid?
“RUSH: DON’T LET POLLS FOOL YOU”
I find it incredibly difficult to believe that the same electorate that voted for John Kasich, a Republican, and know that Ohio’s lot has improved because of HIS policies would turn around and vote for obama no matter what these polls show.
It's gotta be close or he wouldn't be there and neither would Romney.
Reince Priebus needs to go. What’s in a name? A BAD JOKE is what’s in his name. Seriously, replace that slurring slo-mo with someone sharp and QUICKLY to the point!
So you actually believe this? Quinnipiac has admitted their polling is skewed.
And, does anyone think the debates are immaterial? Look what the debates did in the primaries. If Romney performs like he’s capable of performing, it’ll seal the deal for everyone except the all-in leftists. Obama is NOT a good debater, and Romney isn’t a tired old man like McCain.
Consider the source? Yahoo?
I hope Newt is Romney’s debate coach!
If even conservatives can’t completely remain immune to the impact of liberal MSM and negative reporting, who can?
However the majority of Ohio voters are not in the inner cities, why would the vote for Obama? Stupefies the crap out of me.
Maybe they place the polling as they do now, to explain away the illegal alien and dead people votes on election day.
