From Quinnipiac University:
It’s still the economy as Sen. Barack Obama rolls up support among groups who have not supported a Democrat for decades to lead Republican Sen. John McCain in Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania, according to simultaneous Quinnipiac University Swing State polls released today.
Ohio: Obama up 52 – 38 percent, widening an October 1 lead of 50 – 42 percent
And from Big Ten Battleground Polling:
“In September, we saw virtually the entire Big Ten as a battleground,” said Franklin, co-developer of Pollster.com. “Now Obama is clearly winning the Big Ten battleground. The dominance of the economy as a top issue for voters is the overwhelming story.”
The new Big Ten poll shows Obama ahead in every Big Ten state, including Indiana, where McCain held a slight edge in September, and Ohio and Pennsylvania, where last month’s poll results showed the two candidates in a dead heat.
Ohio: Obama 53% McCain 41%
So in the two latest polls released on Ohio, Obama has a double digit lead. This is Obama’s strongest showing yet in the state of Ohio and also includes dramatic margins in Indiana. What a difference a month makes.
