Two Bad State-Level Polls for Obama
PPP has Obama trailing Romney by one point in both Iowa and New Hampshire:
PPP’s newest polls in Iowa and New Hampshire find Mitt Romney leading Barack Obama 49-48 in both states. That represents a big decline for Obama compared to last month. Obama had previously led 51-44 in Iowa and 51-43.5 in New Hampshire on polls conducted the final week of September.
As is often noted, the state-level polling lags the national tracking polling, so perhaps these are examples of these two states coming into line with Romney’s recent surge.
Obama won both states 54-45 in 2008.
The state represent 10 electoral votes in total (6 for IA and 4 for NH).
