President Obama Winning Debt War By Playing Tough

The U.S. president, Barack Obama , leads RepublicanMitt Romney and has a 50% or more of support among likely voters in Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania, three key states for the Nov. 6 election , according to a survey released today .

The survey, conducted by Quinnipiac University for the newspaper The New York Times and CBS among more than 3,500 likely voters, found broad support (around 60%) in the three states to Obama's plans, candidate re-election, to raise taxes on the rich.

Comparative Data
Regarding the question of who would do a better job as president to boost the economy, Obama and Romney are tied for the three states.

Between 24 and July 30 pollsters interviewed by telephone 1,177 likely voters in Florida, 1,193 in Ohio and 1,168 in Pennsylvania, and the survey's margin of error is + / - 2.8 percentage points.

In Florida, Obama has 51% support of likely voters compared with 45% of Romney, former governor of Massachusetts and Republican presidential candidate will be nominated at their party convention in late August in Tampa.

In Ohio, a state in which campaigns today, the president has an 50% support of likely voters compared with 44% of Romney.

The economic situation in Ohio, with an unemployment rate in June (7.2%) lower than the national average (8.2%) is better than other states "and that benefits Obama," he said in a conference Press Peter Brown, assistant director of the Polling Institute of Quinnipiac University.

In Pennsylvania, the difference between the two candidates is greater, with 53% support for Obama and 42% to Romney.

If the election were held today, according to this poll, Obama would prevail in the three states and that historically means seize the White House.
