Poll:  Obama ahead in battleground states but even with swing voters
 In a smaller sample of voters living in 12 key battleground states – Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin – Obama leads Romney by three points, 49 percent to 46 percent.

That’s a narrower edge in these battlegrounds than the eight-point lead the president enjoyed in the June and July NBC/WSJ polls.
And the two presidential candidates are essentially even when it comes to the swing groups of suburban voters, Midwest residents and political independents.”

Wisconsin race tightening
The race for president in Wisconsin has narrowed, with 49 percent supporting Barack Obama and 46 percent Mitt Romney, according to a poll released Wednesday by the Marquette Law School.”

Pennsylvania still leaning blue
President Barack Obama maintains his lead in the lean-blue state with 49 percent support to Romney's 40 percent among likely voters, according to a The Morning Call/Muhlenberg College poll conducted this week.  In other recent statewide polls Obama's lead has ranged from 12 points to six points, but he's consistently been ahead.”,0,129992.story
