Obama Holds Lead in Florida and Ohio Polls

The Wall Street Journal/NBC News/Marist Poll surveys of likely voters released Friday shows President Obama and Mitt Romney battling neck-and-neck in Florida, with  Obama drawing 49% support among likely voters to Mr. Romney's 47%.

The President held a firmer lead in Ohio—51% to 45%, unchanged from mid-October.

In both states, the outcomes will most likely pivot on which side has the greater enthusiasm and best organization to rally its supporters to the polls, says WSJ.


  1. Intrade gives Obama a 66% chance.

  2. Intrade is "cooked" (manipulated). I'm considering buying Romney because I'll double my money on even odds. Better than putting chips on red at Vegas, the best odds in the house, I believe. :)

  3. Intrade is bullshit. Please. Romney is drawing huge crowds and Obama is struggling to get people to show up at his events; hell, he had to move his convention speech to a smaller venue. Enthusiasm is all on the Repugs' side, and they will turn out in droves. Voting is all about emotion. Statists always win. Out with the old, in with the old. We're still screwed.
