The Daily Rundown's Chuck Todd reports on polls in three states – Florida, Virginia, and Ohio where President Barack Obama possesses a lead over challenger Mitt Romney.
President Obama narrowly leads Mitt Romney in three critical swing states, according to NBC-Marist polls out this morning.
The president currently holds a four-point advantage over Romney in Florida and Virginia and a larger six-point lead in Ohio. In all three cases, though, Obama has yet to top the key 50% threshold and his margin has fallen since the last polls in March.
Obama does, however, hold a 10-plus point advantage among women voters in all three states, while Romney maintains a small lead with men.
Obama won these three states in 2008.
Florida - Obama: 48% Romney: 44%
Ohio - Obama: 48% Romney: 42%
Virginia - Obama: 48% Romney: 44%
