Quinnipiac Poll: Obama Leads Romney in Florida, Ohio, Pennsylvania

Emmanuel Dunand/AFP/Alex Wong/Getty Images(WASHINGTON) -- A Quinnipiac University poll released today shows President Obama with slight leads over Mitt Romney in the battleground states of Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania.

In Florida, Obama has a 4 point lead.

  • Obama - 45 percent
  • Romney - 41 percent

In Ohio, Obama has a 9 point lead.

  • Obama - 47 percent
  • Romney - 38 percent

In Pennsylvania, Obama has a 6 point lead.

  • Obama - 45 percent
  • Romney - 39 percent

“Voters generally like the president's plan to suspend deportation of some younger illegal immigrants,” Peter Brown, assistant polling director at Quinnipiac University, told ABC News Radio. “There's strong support, double-digit leads on that question in all these states.”

And more voters are now divided on which of the candidates would be better for their personal economic future -- largely erasing an earlier Romney advantage.

“If the election was today, Barack Obama would carry those states and would get re-elected,” Brown said of the poll’s findings in Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania.

But “the election's not today,” Brown said. “It's in four and a half months” – “an eternity in politics.”

The poll was conducted June 19-25 and has the margin of error in each case of +/- 2.8 percent.
