Mitt Romney has had the momentum on his side leading up to the 2012 Presidential election. A number of battleground states have been trending to Romney like Florida, North Carolina, New Hampshire, Virginia and Colorado.
This had caused Barack Obama to go all in for the state of Ohio. However, it appears that strategy has failed as Mitt Romney has broke through Obama’s last line of defense. According to the most recent Rasmussen poll, Romney now leads Obama, 50% to 48%.
The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Ohio Voters shows Romney with 50% support to President Obama’s 48%. One percent (1%) likes some other candidate, while another one percent (1%) remains undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
