Romney Takes Lead in Ohio Poll Print E-mail

Ablast Ohio.jpgA recently updated poll shows Mitt Romney 2 points ahead of President Barack Obama in Ohio, in the most recent survey showing the pivotal battleground contest getting more tight and still too close to call.

Fox News reports that, “the Rasmussen Reports poll of likely voters had Romney slightly ahead at 50-48 percent. The lead, though was well tithing the 4-point margin of error – the results effectively reflect a virtual tie in the Buckeye State.”

A different poll published over the weekend, by the Ohio News organization, showed the candidates in a dead heat with 49 percent each.

According to Fox News, “the polling though, appears to show Ohio falling well into toss-up territory – despite Obama having the edge in most surveys leading up to October. The RealClearPolitics average of polls shows Obama with a 1.9 percentage point lead there.”

The poll of likely voter was conducted on October 28.

We are looking at a very tight race right now, with a virtual tie in national polling. But we don't elect presidents by popular vote, and Obama has enjoyed a lead in the race to get 270 votes in the Electoral College every single day of this campaign – Romney has never led in any of the Electoral College projections. But in recent days, the Romney-Ryan campaign has claimed that it's moving ahead. As Jonathan Chait noted, “This is a bluff. Romney is carefully attempting to project an atmosphere of momentum, in the hopes of winning positive media coverage and, thus, creating a self-fulfilling prophecy.” Despite zero evidence that Romney has made any gains since receiving a healthy bounce from the first debate, reporters appear to be buying it, with a raft of lazy stories about Mitt Romney's supposed “momentum.” POTUS Barack Obama has a 68 percent chance of winning reelection, with a projected 288 Electoral College votes. I bank would bank that.

The biggest risk in electing Romney is not his policies. The biggest risk is the Supreme Court. Estimates range from three to five the number of Justices who will be retiring or otherwise leaving the court in the next four years. Unlike the elected politicians, the Justices actually have an impact on our lives. Conservatives have long targeted abortion rights, voting rights, marriage equality, affirmative action, and many other hard-won rights, offering various racist and/or bigoted reasons. Make no mistake about it, the forces of the old white America are standing by, ready to reclaim what they feel is theirs. They don’t need millions of votes across the fifty states to do it. They only need five votes on the Supreme Court. So, even if you’re feeling disgust with your choices at the top of the ticket, there is a reason to vote. Even if you’ve written off Obama as another political hack, there is a reason to vote. Even if you believe that, in the end, it doesn’t matter, there is a reason to vote.

You’re vote today could protect your children’s basic civil rights tomorrow.
