SurveyUSA: Obama Leads By 3 In Ohio

President Barack Obama continues to hold a 3-point lead over Mitt Romney in Ohio, according to the latest poll from SurveyUSA released on Wednesday.

The poll, conducted on behalf of Columbus NBC affiliate WCMH-TV, shows Obama earning the support of 47 percent of likely Buckeye State voters, while Romney trails with 44 percent support. Last week, SurveyUSA also showed the president leading by 3 in Ohio.

As was the case with last week’s poll, Wednesday’s survey shows the president claiming a wide lead among early voters in the state. Romney, meanwhile, leads by 2 among those who have not yet voted. SurveyUSA’s latest, conducted Oct. 20-22, does not reflect what effect Monday’s debate will have on the race in Ohio.

The president currently leads by 2 points in Ohio, according to the PollTracker Average, placing the state in the toss-up column on the TPM Electoral Scoreboard.
