The critical battleground state of Ohio remains a draw, with President Obama holding a one-point lead in the first post-debate survey of the contest there.
The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Ohio Voters, taken last night, finds Obama with 50% support to Mitt Romneys 49%. One percent (1%) likes another candidate, and another one percent (1%) is undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

The link below is a time machine going back to October 2004 when the maggot infected mediots and their knee pad pollsters were declaring Kerry would be president:
They were wrong then and now!
This is a turnout election. Obama has lost the juju from 2008 but there are still more gimmee voters in America than earnit voters. Gonna be a close election.
This is taken from Rasmussen:
“And 50 percent think the economy will improve if Romney wins and the GOP keeps the House and wins back the Senate. Not so if Democrats win. Just 34 percent think the economy will improve if Obama wins reelection and the Democrats Congress, with 40 percent believing it will get worse.”
I think that the above is the real indicator on how this election will turn. The economy sucks. No one is going to vote in a way that will make the economy worse. Not just in Ohio but nationwide. Think positive and work hard for victory in November!
Romney swing state surge Confirmed here:
Confirming this surge is We Ask America, who also shows a surge for Romney in the state of Florida.
PRESIDENT VIRGINIA (We Ask America)
Mitt Romney (R) 48%
Barack Obama (D-inc) 45%
PRESIDENT OHIO (We Ask America)
Mitt Romney (R) 47%
Barack Obama (D-inc) 46%
PRESIDENT FLORIDA (We Ask America)
Mitt Romney (R) 49%
Barack Obama (D-inc) 46%
and this one from Clint
Absentee numbers do not, so far, support Ras or anyone else. They point to a substantial Romney victory.
It always was. IMO
Your link is defective. I want to know the D/R/I breakout.
Has anyone else seen the breakdown of the Ohio absentee ballots?
“In 2008, there were 1,158,301 total absentee ballots requested: 33 percent were requested by registered Democrats and 19 percent were requested by registered Republicans a 14-point gap. So far in 2012, only 638,997 ballots have been requested, 29 percent by Democrats and 24 percent by Republicans only a five-point gap.”
Ohio will be going to Romney.
Ras Daily tracking national poll is a three day rolling average. This state poll however is a one-day poll.
Yes, I know it is a one day poll but I believe that some who did not make a snap decision the day after the debate will still trickle in over a few days.
Love the positive news but where are you getting that from? I heard absentee ballots were lower this election cycle.
See post #31 about Ohio absentee ballots.
Very helpful. Thanks.
