This is just a heads up diary. A new poll just came out at 10pm eastern schedule for October 11 2012.

PHILADELPHIA (October 11, 2012)–
In a new Philadelphia Inquirer Pennsylvania poll presented by Susquehanna Bank and published this morning, President Barack Obama leads Republican PresidentialNominee Mitt Romney by 8 points among likely voters in Pennsylvania, with 50% of voters in favor of the President and 42% in favor of Romney. The first presidential debate appears to have notsignificantly impacted poll respondents in changing their candidate preference, with data indicating a3-point decrease in Obama’s lead in the Garden State since the last Inquirer
public opinion poll waspublished in September following the national conventions. The current poll was conducted October 4through October 8 among 600 voters in Pennsylvania who are likely to cast a ballot in the November 6presidential election, with a margin of error +/- 4%

Obama: 50 percent

Romney: 42 percent

These are likely voters.

7:56 PM PT: There's a little confusion. This pollster did 2 polls(PA,NJ) The NJ poll is 51 to 40 for Obama. Remember this poll is coming out tomorrow so some may get mixed up. That's why I just gave the PA poll. :)

8:02 PM PT: Thanx 4 rec. I hope these polls help people exhale today.

8:50 PM PT: Michigan-- Obama 49 Romney 42

NBC/WSJ/Marist: Va:R-48 O:47     FL:O-48 R-47    OHIO: O-51 R-45

10:33 PM PT: Don't get too excited, but the internals of the Ohio poll states Obama rec'd 20 percent(abt 1.2 mil) in early voting. Obama crushed Romney in early voting, if this is true it will be hard for Romney to win Ohio. People are discussing this on Twitter now. Stay focused and engaged.

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.
