A Rasmussen post-presidential debate poll in Ohio shows Mitt Romney has pulled ahead of Barack Obama in the battleground state among those who say they are certain to vote. The poll shows Romney ahead 51 percent to 48 percent in this critical group.
The Rasmussen Poll also suggests Romneys strong debate performance has halted Obamas momentum among all respondents with a statistical tie of 50 percent for Obama verses 49 percent for Romney.
Among the 83-percent of Ohioans who have already made up their minds on who they will vote for, Romney leads Obama 52 percent to 48 percent, while the 17-percent of respondents who say they could still change their minds favor Obama by a two-to-one margin.
In more good news for the Romney campaign, Thursday, The Examiner reported that the GOP has narrowed the difference between Democrats and Republicans in absentee ballot requests used for early voting in Ohio, suggesting Romney is doing better in the state than some earlier polls suggest.
Quoting The Examiner: While in 2008, 33 percent of the 1,158,301 absentee ballots went to Democrats and just 19 percent to registered Republicans, a 14-point gap, this year 29 percent are being requested by Democrats and 24 percent by Republicans, a five-point gap.

Mitt is also up in FL and VA.
The Dems are sweating bullets.
I’ve never been there but what is the state of the economy currently in Ohio?
It’s doing well from what I have heard, thanks to the GOP governor.
Apparently the O-phone strategy is not working in Ohio.
New PPP poll out for Wisconsin tonight
Will show O 49 and Romney 47.
Shift from O 52 and R 45 two weeks ago.
Although PPP trying to swing narrative that Saturday polling looking more pre debate than post.
Still things are going our way now.
And since it’s PPP, you can safely add 3 to 4 points for Romney for polling bias.
The debate win was so important. Now the mask is off of the false perception that Obama had it in the bag.
Yup....you can’t unring a bell, and Obama got his bell rung in that debate in a way Americans have never seen bfore. Obama was exposed as an Afirmative Action product.
After seeing the “Obama Phone Lady” so many times I ask myself, would I vote the same way SHE does? I think not. She’s one of the best reasons there is to vote opposite her. Bless her heart.
There have been headlines about a handful of bogus Republican registration forms in Florida. On Friday, word came down that the 250,000+ Democrat forms would now be scrutinized. Wanna bet that there will be many, many more bogus forms? Wanna bet that they will never make the headlines?
I wouldn’t be surprised if is was dead even in the battleground states before Mittens Zulu-ed The One.
Add 3 percent for polling bias - remove 5 percent for voter fraud! We have to be way ahead to beat their cheating.
PPP the phony Dem party front group
That quickly cooked up the hoax poll for Akin with some wild
+10 GOP sample !
Mitt must be way up !
Now Scott has to stop the Chicago thug machine from bussing in
Obama drones from out of state .
Demand everyone show I’d before entering the building for security reasons would stop it !
In the communist held part of Ohio I live in the economy sucks. But then again, it has for decades because democrats have a strangle hold on the area. (near Cleveland)
I have my own theory on why there are so few yard signs. People aren’t putting Romney signs in their yards because they don’t want to be viewed as racists. There are very few signs in any yards here. We also have not had the onslaught of those rats that were signing people up to vote and busing them to the polls like we had last election.
It’s all very strange.
Obama yard signs and bumper stickers are few and far between here in SW Ohio. Many more Romney/Ryan signs are to be seen.
I can live without the msm coverage, as long as they are taken out of the rolls.
