As someone who has done a fair share of door knocking and phone calling throughout Ohio, I couldn’t be more happy with the latest polling results from Rasmussen, which have America’s Comeback Team edging out America’s Sorry-Excuse-for-a-President Team by two points!
You can really feel the momentum here in Ohio as the crowds at Romney events swell to over-capacity and front yard across suburbia are peppered with Romney signs.
The result of this pull validate that feeling:
The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Ohio Voters shows Romney with 50% support to President Obama’s 48%. One percent (1%) likes some other candidate, while another one percent (1%) remains undecided.
And the internal numbers suggest even more movement toward Mitt!
Among all Ohio voters, Romney now has a 12-point lead over the president in voter trust – 53% to 41% – when it comes to the economy. Last week, he had just a seven-point advantage among voters in the state when they were asked which candidate they trusted more to deal with the economy.
Romney’s also trusted more by eight points in the areas of job creation and energy policy but leads Obama by just two when it comes to housing issues.
National security has been an area where the president has typically had an advantage over Romney this year. But, the Republican challenger now has a 52% to 42% advantage on the issue.
*It should be noted that there are other polls that currently have Obama leading in Ohio. So, as with all polls, take this one as a grain of salt — and help us keep the momentum going here in Ohio!
