President Barack Obama leads Mitt Romney by 3 in Ohio in a poll from SurveyUSA.
The automated poll, conducted Oct. 12-15 on behalf of Columbus-based NBC affiliate WCMH-TV, shows Obama leading Romney among likely Buckeye State voters, 45 percent to 42 percent. Nine percent said they remain undecided. Obama's lead over Romney swells among Ohio voters who have already cast their ballots, 57 percent to 38 percent. The two are tied among those who haven't voted yet.
Obama led by only a point in SurveyUSA's previous poll of Ohio, conducted the first weekend of October. The PollTracker Average shows the president with a tiny lead there.
