Obama is still ahead in Ohio and is above 50%.  Obama is 51% while Romney is at 47%.

Could Ohio be Obama's Firewall?


Whom ever wins Ohio will win the presidency.

Romney can't win the election if he loses both Ohio and Wisconsin.  The Obama team knows this and that is why Obama is in Ohio today and Biden will be in Wisconsin on Friday.

Romney knows it too and that is why he will be spending the next 5 days in Ohio.

Obama will be doing his debate prep in Virginia which may also be another Obama firewall as well.

What is really important about this poll is that it was during Obama's WORST time of polling this entire election.  It was from October 5-8 so it included that HORRIBLE Friday where Obama did poorly across many polls.

Another interesting point is that the Romney only has 40 offices in Ohio while the Obama camp has 120 offices in Ohio.  They have offices in areas that will overwhelmingly NOT vote for Obama.

Folks we CAN win this thing.  It is up to Obama to STEP IT UP!!!

SNARK: Perhaps Andrew Sullivan will come off the ledge...LOL!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
