Pennsylvania and Wisconsin are two states that can no longer be labeled "Safe Obama" or "Lean Obama".
Rasmussen Reports released polls today showing that:
- those states are close
- Romney has his highest level of support in those states
|Rasmussen Reports, 10/10/12|
The momentum is on Romney’s side. If states that were previously "Safe Obama" can be this close, just imagine the lead Romney has in the "Battlegrounds".
Much of this has to do with the economy.
Voters again trust Mitt Romney slightly more than President Obama on five major issues regularly tracked by Rasmussen Reports. The widest gap in trust continues to be the economy where Romney has a seven-point lead.
