According to a CNN/ORC International survey released Friday, President Barack Obama holds a three point advantage over Republican nominee Mitt Romney in the contest for Ohio's much fought over 18 electoral votes.
Fifty-percent of likely voters questioned in the poll say they are backing the president, with 47% supporting the former Massachusetts governor. Obama's three-point edge is within the survey's sampling error. The survey was conducted Tuesday through Thursday...
... with 7% saying they could still change their mind on their choice for president.
Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson, Green Party candidate Jill Stein, and Constitution Party candidate Virgil Goode are also on the presidential ballot in Ohio. When their names were added to the poll, Obama is at 47%, Romney 44%, with Johnson at 5%, Stein at 1% and Goode registering less than one-half of one percent.

47% Obama; 44% Romney; 5% Libertarian; 1% Green when all parties are included
Ok coupling this with the Ras CO poll I’m starting to step off the edge just a little bit.
Getting ready to cheat I see. Man the courtrooms, pay the lawyers, full steam ahead.
BS... O is not getting 50% and even with leaners... no I think the data is seriously messed up here!
With this being a CNN poll, I’d have to say that Romney has picked up Ohio.
This result will not happen. Not buying it.
The poll is being 'juiced' up to favor the Democrats.
No breakout so I smell the usual RAT.
More than half the sample are “registered voters” v “likely voters” and there are no internals as to party affiliation? Jokes. CNN is shameful.
You're not kidding, brother - if 86% of your Registered Voters are making it through your Likely Voters screen, then you have bad, bad data.
*Could* Barry be up three in Ohio? Sure, but there's no way to tell with a poll this bad.
If the LP candidate gets more than 1% I will shave off Axelrod’s mustache.
Juiced is the correct word, as in Cool Aid. I can't wait to watch Chrissy Mathews, Mr. Ed Schultz the talking horse's ass and lesbo Rachael Madcow to drink the juice and commit suicide on Tuesday night.
Only worrisome if you actually expect the turnout model in Ohio to look like that...
CNN? You mean the CNN with the lady with the transcript? Let’s hear what they have to say! It must be important! \sarc
Notice how when the liberaltarians are removed as a separate party they break for the communist.
I’ve been saying for quite some time, there are some conservative-leaning libertarians, but most of them are better labeled as liberaltarians.
Why? According to Rasmussen Romney wins Colorado no matter how the undecideds split.
As I said, maybe it's wishful thinking on my part but I'd bet a good portion of the "undecided" vote just doesn't want to admit that they've had it with this regime. Maybe they're afraid of the racist label, maybe they want to appear above the partisan fray and want the pollsters to think they're "really giving the election considerable thought".
After all we've seen from the asshat in the WH this past four years I find it hard to believe it can be this close. In the past a president who presided over this crap economy, not to mention the bungling and coverup in Libya would be threatened with impeachment, not being considered for another term. As Rush said, the same people who gave the GOP such a landslide in 2010 , are not going to turn around 2 years later and vote this clown in again.
Excellent advice for all the hand wringers, nervous nellies, ledge standers, and 'concerned' weenies in here, ma'am !
And above all else y'all :
Third-party voters are drug-addled, animal molesting, sociopathic retards.
Democrats are even worse.
Yes, the 5% Libertarian was a dead give-away that this is a slimey poll
Never heard of ORC International survey till now..
Lol I misspoke I originally thought this poll was in favor of Romney.
Unfortunately, CNN is running in the lobby of the building where I work. It is non-stop leftist propaganda. They torture facts and omit anything that goes counter to the liberal/statist narrative. You can’t believe anything they say or write.
Prove them wrong, Ohio.
796 is the sample size? What a joke.
It is CNN, but this is very bad news for any chance of Romney/Ryan winning. Obama will win, sad but true.
Libertarians are an entire wing of the Republican party. There is no pro-liberty analog on the Democrat side. They are all statists.
I believe the last CNN poll of Ohio was O+5, yes?
So let’s look at trends only - Romney has now moved 2 points closer according to the biased CNN, so the trend is in our favor and Romney is likely up in Ohio at this point.
I gotta nice bridge to sell ya.
“Obama will win, sad but true.”
THE LAST POLL FROM ORC HAD obama UP BY 5 POINTS WHEN GALLUP HAD MITT UP BY 5 POINTS. Are you going to vote for Mitt or are you going to surrender to propaganda?
Hi dear friend... WE WILL WIN!
Over? OVER? Was it over when the Germans attacked Pearl Harbor? NO! It ain't over until we SAY it's over!!!
There is a portion of the Progressives who call themselves libertarian. Their main issues are drugs and sex: no laws at all regarding either. They have major problems w/authority, which is why they don’t admit to having anything in common w/statists.
I have had some of them admit to me that they would vote D if there was no L choice.
They say they back Ron Paul.
I know quite a few liberaltarians who would take serious issue with your comment.
They want nothing to do with the Republican party.
Many of them would go Green if they couldn’t go L.
Just read the comments section on Zero Hedge, Market Ticker, and Mish.
There is a difference between a Libertarian and a Libertine. Libertines don't want the state to get in the way of their self gratification (sex, drugs, etc.). But they are perfectly happy to have the state confiscate wealth and property. This confiscation is a key tenet of the Green party. Libertarians don't want the state to get in the way of individual liberty. This is why Republican libertarians oppose abortion, on the grounds that the unborn baby is an individual with the same rights as anyone else. And why they reject wild public spending for green energy.
The next time a Democrat tells you they are libertarian, ask them if an unborn baby has a right to liberty.
Bill Maher claims that he’s a libertarian, ‘Nuff said.
