Obama Closes 4-Point Swing State Gap

Posted by | November 4, 2012 19:24 | Filed under: Top Stories

The final USA Today/Gallup poll of swing states shows gains by President Obama, who has closed a 4-point gap from early October. Most of these numbers are from interview before Hurricane Sandy.

As Election Day approaches, Obama leads 50%-46% among registered voters. That’s the first time since Romney clinched the Republican nomination last spring that either candidate has reached the 50% threshold and the biggest margin during that time.

The poll was taken in the dozen battlegrounds most likely to determine the outcome in the Electoral College: Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin. In a sign of their importance, one or both of the presidential candidates held events during the campaign’s final days in nine of those 12 states — and neither stumped anywhere else.
