It appears that President Obama is getting a huge push from the Democratic National Convention, allowing him to surge ahead of his opponent, Mitt Romney. According to a recent poll conducted by Marist College, NBC News, and the Wall Street Journal, the president has a great deal to smile about this week.
The poll shows that in the battleground states of Florida and Virginia, President Obama now has a five point lead. In Ohio, his lead is now seven points. Obama’s margins in these three states are the largest that they’ve been since polling began. There wasn’t much of a bounce recorded across the nation, but in critical swing state polls, it appears that the president has been gaining some ground.
If Obama were to win two of these three states, he would probably win the election. These states are the biggest swing states on the map and provide 60 of the 95 electoral votes available in all swing states combined.
If the president wins 33 of the 95 votes, he has a very good chance of winning as well. Things are looking good for the president.
