A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in Ohio finds Obama leads Mitt Romney 48% to 40%.

If Santorum is his Republican opponent, the president posts a 47% to 41% lead.

Ah, my fault. I was looking up the 2008 Pennsylvania polls, not Ohio ... Tongue

Wasn't this the time back in 2008 when the Wright-stuff came up to haunt Obama and McCain pulled ahead ?

The July poll looks like an outlier.

Same question from the VA poll with a comfortable Obama lead. What is the GOP plan without Ohio?

It doesn't matter what the plan is.  We're gonna lose the Presidency.  We need to focus on still getting the vote out though, and making sure that our downballot races don't suffer.

So, you concede Obama's re-election. Which means the GOP can't get the things they want.  Even if the Dems retake the House, you guys are gonna filibuster every single proposal they put up, so the Dems can't get what they want. Why bother?

Poll numbers like this are because of the ongoing GOP primary.  After Santorum and Gingrich drop out, and the Republicans rally around their man (who will be Romney), his poll numbers will shoot up.

Increased exposure to Mitt Romney doesn't tend to make people like him more.

I expect Romney to go up to Mccain's numbers when he actully wins this thing.That doesn't change the fact people don't like him.The last front runner with these numbers were Clinton.
And Romney Is No Clinton.

Looks likePA is more winnable for Romney as OH

it`s not possible that in the Senate race both candidates are tied and for the presidential level it`s a blowout. But OH is defenetily in play and now doubt Obama leads there at the moment. The R`s of the state are hurting there and OH is a twin of the national level so it`s 50/50 today I think!

If Rasmussen shows this numbers in Sept after the conventions I would be worry but not now

I see nothing but good news in these polls. Before the R`s even united behind a candidate and started full force into Obama hes already in the 40`s in these states.

Romney's problem is not with Republicans. It's with Indys.

There you go.

Why do you think that?  Independents who lean one way or the other are pretty damn predictable voters -- not so much as partisan self-identifiers.  There aren't many Dem-leaning independents who voted Republican in 2008...so why do you think that's Romney's problem?

True, this is basically what he needs to get to 270. If he loses Ohio, he needs to make up those 18 EV elsewhere. Romney would need something like CO+NV+IA.

Mitt Romney is the new Nixon. He needs a left leaning third party candidate in or to win the general election. Hillary running as a 3rd party candidate (which obviously will not happen) is his only chance.
