Big news in a key battleground state. Rasmussen’s latest poll of likely voters has Mitt Romney leading by a slim margin in the Buckeye state:
Among all Ohio voters, Romney now has a 12-point lead over the president in voter trust – 53% to 41% – when it comes to the economy. Last week, he had just a seven-point advantage among voters in the state when they were asked which candidate they trusted more to deal with the economy.
Romney’s also trusted more by eight points in the areas of job creation and energy policy but leads Obama by just two when it comes to housing issues.
National security has been an area where the president has typically had an advantage over Romney this year. But, the Republican challenger now has a 52% to 42% advantage on the issue.
