President Obama has the edge over Mitt Romney in three key battleground states in large part because voters find him more likable than Romney, a poll released today found.
Quinnipiac University’s survey of more than 3,500 likely voters found Obama ahead by 11 percentage points in Pennsylvania (53 to 42 percent), and 6 percentage points in both Ohio (50 to 44 percent) and Florida (51 to 45 percent). Obama won all three states in the 2008 presidential election.
