Ohio polls reported the president having an eight percentage point lead over Mitt Romney with 51 to 43 percent. The Ohio results proved to be much better than the previous poll conducted shortly after the Democratic National Convention.
Polls conducted by Columbus Dispatch showed Obama leading by four percentage points while voice-recorded polls administered by Public Policy Polling revealed a nine percentage point lead for the president.
The Huffington Posts’ Pollster Tracking Model shows no major shift in Obama’s leading position on the national level. In comparison to a week ago, the president is currently leading nationally by four percentage points.
Despite Obama’s lead, the polls are still very close. It may only take a small bump in Romney’s favor to heighten the competition.
