Obama Surges in Three Key Swing States

New Wall Street Journal/NBC News/Marist polls show President Obama building leads over Mitt Romney in Ohio, Florida and Virginia among likely voters.

Florida: Obama 49%, Romney 44%

Ohio: Obama 50%, Romney 43%

Virginia: Obama 49%, Romney 44%

"These states - all of which Obama carried in 2008 but which George W. Bush won in 2004 - represent three of the most crucial battlegrounds in the 2012 presidential election. And according to NBC's electoral map, Romney likely needs to capture at least two of these states, if not all three, to secure the 270 electoral votes necessary to win the presidency."

Politico reports the numbers in Ohio "roughly match up with internal surveys conducted by both Democrats and Republicans recently."
