Poll Indicates Obama, Romney Nearly Even In Ohio

A new poll shows President Barack Obama and Republican Mitt Romney are nearly even in Ohio six months before the presidential election. The Quinnipiac University poll released Thursday finds Obama with 44 percent to 42 percent for Romney. The university's poll last month showed Obama ahead of Romney by a slightly bigger margin. But that was before former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum got out of the race. The poll taken over the last week shows Obama doing much better among women, while men are strongly behind the former Massachusetts governor. The survey of 1,130 Ohio voters has a margin of error of 3 percentage points.
