WASHINGTON -A new Quinnipiac poll shows President Obama with a slim lead among likely voters over Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney in Virginia and Wisconsin, two swing states that could be crucial to either candidate’s win this November.
Obama leads 49 to 45 percent in Virginia and 51 to 45 percent in Wisconsin. Each state went for him in 2008 but have since elected Republican governors.
The poll also found that Mitt Romney holds a 5 point lead over the president in Colorado, edging Obama with a 50 to 45 percent margin.
“There is good reason why Virginia, Colorado and Wisconsin are considered swing states – and this data shows how close they are,” Peter Brown, the assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute, said.
The surveys took place from July 31st through August 6th and polled 1,412 likely Virginia voters, 1,428 likely Wisconsin voters and 1,463 likely Colorado voters.
A poll released on August 1st found Obama leading by 6 points in Florida and Ohio and 11 points in Pennsylvania. All three are considered swing states as well.
