obama romney swing states pollAfter being polled following the Democratic National Convention, residents in key battleground states favor President Barack Obama over leading GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney, according to the L.A. Times.

According to the most-recent NBC/Wall St. Journal/Marist University poll, President Obama is leading Romney five to seven points in key swing states: In Florida, Obama leads 49 percent to Romney’s 43 percent; in Virginia, Obama leads 49 percent to Romney’s 43 percent; and in New Hampshire, a poll conducted by WMUR-TV shows President Obama leading 45 percent to Romney’s 40 percent.

Most notable and vital to a presidential win is President Obama’s reported lead in Ohio, where he leads Romney by seven points, 50 percent to 43 percent, respectively.

These findings translate to the economy as well. Ohio reportedly has the worst perception of the Republican candidate, with 48 percent of Ohioans believing that Obama can handle the economy better than Romney, who has just 44 percent of those polled convinced that he could do a better job than President Obama.

As for favorability, the L.A. Times reports:

The gap in favorability is particularly large in Ohio, where 51% of likely voters have a favorable impression of Obama while only 40% feel that way about Romney. In other states, Romney comes closer to parity with Obama, but only in Virginia does the Republican nominee get a net-favorable rating, 46% to 45%, compared with 53% to 43% for Obama.

Obviously, if this trend extends to other states — and is upheld in the aforementioned ones — Romney will have a serious problem. In order to become president, one has to secure at least 270 electoral votes, which come primarily from the “battleground states” that have been named.

Only time will tell if President Obama can maintain the momentum he gained from the Democratic Convention.
