4. INFO

The survey also suggests Obama is riding a wave of optimism in Ohio, where voters appear to separate their worries about the direction of the nation from how they regard the landscape in the Buckeye State. While 54% of Ohio voters believe the country is on the wrong track (and 41% believe the nation is heading in the right direction), 51% of Ohio voters believe their state is on the right track (while 43% disagree).

The TIME survey shows the gender gap is working in Obama’s favor: the President is winning 56% of the women’s vote in Ohio, while Romney is winning only 37% of women. By comparison, 51% of Ohio men back Romney while 42% of men prefer Obama.

While Romney is winning 49% of white voters, Obama is still attracting the support of 43% of that demographic group, a level well above what polls say he is winning in some other states. Obama is running strongest among voters under 40; Romney fares best among voters 65 and older. Romney is ahead of Obama among Ohio independents, winning 53% to Obama’s 38%.

Ohioans give Romney a four point edge in handling the economy, 50% to 46%, but Obama enjoys a 49% to 44% margin on foreign policy. Respondents sided with Obama, 50% to 44%, on the question of which candidate would better represent the interests of the middle class.

5. Yeah, but that means Romney's gonna win..

I'm using the same logic that our local Fox affiliate in Portland Oregon (KPTV) used after the third debate, when they stated that a 48-40 percent win by Obama was really a tie, or something, because of the margin of error.

9. Portland was saying that?

Surprising from such a liberal city.

but we do have that Fox affiliate, and there are even a few teabaggers hiding in the bushes here and there.

11. One of the only Republican friends I have lived in Skapoose and ran for state office in 2010

And was a tea partier. We get along great as long as we don't mention politics unless we are ribbing each other.

7. And this is why state polls matter a tad more than national right now
