PPP: Obama Above 50 Percent, Leads By 4 In Nevada

President Barack Obama holds a 4-point lead in Nevada, according to a poll released Wednesday afternoon.

The poll, conducted by Democratic-leaning Public Policy Polling, shows Obama earning the support of 51 percent among likely voters in the state, while Mitt Romney trails with 47 percent — an identical margin to what was shown in PPP’s survey of the Silver State earlier this month.  

Obama has consistently led in Nevada throughout the campaign. Despite the state’s beleaguered economy, it’s a battleground that poses plenty of problems for the Republican nominee. The PollTracker Average illustrates Obama’s steady edge in the state.
