Source: NBC News

(NBC NEWS) President Barack Obama leads Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney in New Hampshire, and the two are locked in tight contests in Nevada and North Carolina, according to a new series of NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Marist polls released Thursday.

Obama is ahead of Romney, 51 percent to 44 percent, among likely voters in New Hampshire. He also edges Romney in Nevada and North Carolina, but within the margin of error.
In Nevada, Obama gets the support of 49 percent of likely voters and Romney gets 47 percent. In North Carolina, it’s Obama at 48 percent and Romney at 46 percent. Among registered voters in all three states, Obama’s lead expands to 8 points in New Hampshire, 4 points in North Carolina, and a wider 7 points in Nevada.)

The president’s approval rating in New Hampshire is at 50 percent, up from 47 percent in June. In North Carolina and Nevada, it’s 47 percent – unchanged in North Carolina and up just a point in Nevada.
Obama is viewed more favorably in all three states than Romney. In New Hampshire, a state where Romney’s a known commodity and campaigned heavily during the Republican primary, 52 percent had an unfavorable opinion of him.

In Nevada, Romney is seen negatively by almost a majority of respondents (48 percent), while 45 percent of the state’s voters viewed him favorably.
Romney’s favorability rating was net-positive only in North Carolina, though opinion on the former Massachusetts governor was nearly split. Romney’s favorable score was 46 percent; 45 percent viewed him negatively.

1. WE NEED TO WIN

We need to win every state not just swing states. We need to send a message that MILLONARIE's can't buy elections. Think of the look on Sheldon, Rove's and Koch Bros faces when they see that their boy loses on Nov 6!! Millions of dollars for nothing! That is what should motivate you to put up yard signs, make calls, go door to door or just give a couple of bucks to a democrat

2. Media continuing to use their LV models to make the race closer

I find it very hard to believe voters can have such a low opinion of Mittens yet he be running so close. Doesn't add up to me.

4. Mittens HAS to win NC, NV, NH and FL to get to 270.

Because he is going to lose Ohio. And right now Obama leads in all of those states.
