A new Quinnipiac poll shows President Obama widening his lead over Republican rival Mitt Romney in swing states.
President Obama has exceeded the 50% mark in each state, and is leading on all major issues, including the economy, health care, and national security, which is somewhat surprising given Democrats’ perceived weakness on defense.
“Gov. Mitt Romney had a bad week in the media and it shows in these key swing states,” said Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute. “The furor over his 47 percent remark almost certainly is a major factor in the roughly double-digit leads President Barack Obama has in Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania. The debates may be Romney’s best chance to reverse the trend in his favor.”
