NOTE: The Video below from an Ohio voter registration station shows you the enthusiasm of Romney supporters versus the Obama protesters. Obama leads by 4 points in new Ohio poll 49%-45%. Among voters who remain undecided just 13% think he’s doing a good job to 65% who give him poor marks.
PPP’s newest poll of the Presidential race in Ohio finds Barack Obama leading Mitt Romney 49-45, down just slightly from a 50-45 advantage on our last independent poll there three weeks ago.
It’s a mistake to think based on recent polling in Ohio that the race there is over. Obama is not popular in the state, with 48% of voters approving of him to 49% who disapprove.
Key for Obama is that he’s down only 49-46 with white voters and 48-47 with seniors. Those are groups Romney’s going to need to run the score up with if he wants to win, and right now it’s not happening.
-66% of Democrats in Ohio say they’re ‘very excited’ about voting this fall compared to 62% of Republicans. It continues to look as if there will be little or no pro-Republican enthusiasm gap this year compared to 2008.
-Obama and Romney tie at 47% in terms of who voters trust more on the economy, but Obama has a 49/45 advantage on foreign policy.
