Obama Breaks 50% in Three Key Swing States

New Quinnipiac University/CBS News/New York Times polls find President Obama leading Mitt Romney in Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania.

Florida: Obama 51%, Romney 45%

Ohio: Obama 50%, Romney 44%

Pennsylvania: Obama 53%, Romney 42%

Just four percent of likely voters in these states are undecided.

Also interesting: "But a torrent of television advertising in the states, particularly in Ohio and Florida, appears to be resonating in Mr. Obama's quest to define his Republican rival. The polls found that more voters say Mr. Romney's experience was too focused on making profits at Bain Capital, the private equity firm he led, rather than the kind of experience that would help create jobs."
