Obama has edge over Romney in three battleground states
President Barack Obama has the edge over Republican Mitt Romney in three potentially decisive states in the presidential election.
Obama tops Romney by seven percentage points among likely voters in both Ohio (49-42 percent) and Virginia (50-43 percent). In Florida, the president holds a five-point edge (49-44 percent).
Obamas lead is just outside the polls margin of sampling error in Ohio and Virginia, and within the margin of sampling error in Florida.
