Saturday Swing State Polls Continue To Show Obama Leading

We had a slew of Swing State polls today and, once again, it was mostly good news for the President:

Colorado: Romney 47%, Obama 45% (Reuters/Ipsos)

Florida: Romney 51%, Obama 45% (Miami Herald/Mason-Dixon)

Florida: Obama 49%, Romney 47% (NBC/WSJ/Marist)

Florida: Obama 47%, Romney 47% (Reuters/Ipsos)

Michigan: Obama 52%, Romney 46% (Public Policy Polling)

Ohio: Obama 50%, Romney 46% (We Ask America)

Ohio: Obama 51%, Romney 45% (NBC/WSJ/Marist)

Ohio: Obama 46%, Romney 45% (Reuters/Ipsos)

Virginia: Obama 49%, Romney 48% (We Ask America)

Virginia: Obama 48%, Romney 45% (Reuters/Ipsos)

Wisconsin: Obama 52%, Romney 45% (We Ask America)

I would not necessarily put much weight in the Reuters/Ipsos polls. They are “online” polls of dubious accuracy in my experience.

Update: Two additional polls that didn’t make the list:

Ohio:  Obama 49% Romney 49% (Rasmussen Reports)

New Hampshire: Obama 48% Romney 48% (WMUR/UNH)

  1. Neil Hudelson says:

    Obama increasing strength in Florida is kind of surprising.

  2. Anderson says:

    Yeah, exactly what is an online poll? News flash: disenfranchising the poor isn’t quite far enough along for that to work just yet.

  3. stonetools says:

    I listened to both Face the Nation and Meet the Press. The fossils on those programs didn’t mention the polls , except to dismiss them. It was all “feeling”, “momentum” , and “enthusiasm for Romney” at the rallies.
    Nobody asked Chuck Todd, the NBC numbers man, what the polls indicated. There was no numbers person on Face the Nation at all.
    These pundits are dinosaurs who don’t even know they are dinosaurs.
