(WASHINGTON) -- A handful of new polls show President Obama leading in important battleground states.
Surveys by CBS/New York Times/Quinnipiac rate him ahead in Virginia (50-46 percent) and Wisconsin (51-45 percent), while erasing a Romney lead in Colorado to pull ahead narrowly (48-47 percent). Other recent swing-state polls, released by NBC/Wall Street Journal/Marist, showed Obama leading in Ohio (50-43 percent), Florida (49-44 percent) and Virginia.
In the large, Democratic states of California and New York, Obama hasn’t seen much of a decline. His 2008 vote margins of 24 and 27 percentage points, respectively, remain virtually unchanged, according to recent polls from Field Research and Quinnipiac.
