President Barack Obama holds a 3-point lead over Mitt Romney in Ohio, and an even larger edge among the state’s independents, a new poll released Tuesday shows.
The latest release from Democratic-leaning Public Policy Polling (PPP) shows Obama leading Romney among likely Ohio voters, 48 percent to 45 percent — virtually unchanged from PPP’s previous survey of Ohio in late June. Obama is also holding his lead among Ohio women, while receiving a significant bump among independents in the state. The president and Romney were locked at 42 percent among independents in June; Obama has now opened up a 10-point lead with independent Ohio voters, 49 percent to 39 percent.
