Mitt Romney

Pro-Life presumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney has comeback in two of three swing-states, according to numbers from the Quinnipiac University Swing State Poll.

In its March Swing State Poll, Obama was ahead of Romney in Florida, 49% to 42%; in Ohio, 45% to 42%; and in Pennsylvania. 45% to 42%.

But in results released Thursday, Romney was ahead in Florida, 44% to 43% and down only 2 points in Ohio (44% to 42%).

“Gov. Mitt Romney has closed President Barack Obama’s leads in Ohio and Florida to the point that those two states are now essentially tied, a turnaround from the end of March when the president enjoyed leads in those key states,” said Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute.  “Romney’s ability to cut into the president’s leads in Ohio and Florida reflects two changes in the political environment: First, since he is now the de facto nominee, Romney is no longer being attacked by his fellow Republicans, who are closing ranks behind him. Second, voter optimism about the economy has leveled off, reflecting economic statistics over the past month and the public reaction to them.”
