According to a recent NBC/Wall Street Journal poll, President Obama is leading his rival Mitt Romney in multiple swing states.

Obama is up 5 points in Florida and Virginia, and a whopping 7 points in Ohio.

From the Huffington Post:

“Obama won all three states over Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) in 2008, but Florida especially would be a crucial winfor Romney.

Obama has a 49 percent approval rating in Florida and Virginia, and 50 percent approval in Ohio, among likely voters.

‘You’d rather be in Obama’s shoes than Romney’s in these three critical states,’ Marist’s Lee Miringoff told NBC, cautioning that the president’s lead is not ‘insurmountable.’

Most likely voters said they had made up their minds, with only 2 percent in each state saying their choice might change come Election Day.”
