*President Barack Obama holds an edge over Mitt Romney in Ohio, Florida and Pennsylvania, a new Quinnipiac University/New York Times/CBS News poll out Wednesday shows.
When likely voters in the three battleground states were asked whom they would vote for if the election were held today, here’s the way it broke down:
- Florida: Obama, 51 percent; Romney, 45 percent.
- Ohio: Obama, 50 percent; Romney 44 percent
- Pennsylvania: Obama, 53 percent; Romney 42 percent
No one has won the White House since 1960 without winning at least two of the states. Obama won all three in 2008.
Support for Obama’s proposal to increase taxes on households making more than $250,000 per year is 58 to 37 percent in Florida, 60 to 37 percent in Ohio and 62 to 34 percent in Pennsylvania, the survey finds.
