Washington, Mar 29(ANI): President Barack Obama has opened up leads on his possible Republican rival, Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum in all of three very crucial swing states of Ohio, Pennsylvania and Florida, according to a new poll.
A Quinnipiac poll, which was released on Wednesday, illustrates Obama is leading in Ohio by 47 per cent, whereas Romney is on 41 per cent, and Santorum has 40 per cent.
According to the Quinnipiac survey, in Florida, where Obama has not polled well recently, the President is now up 49 per cent, 42 per cent on Romney and 50 per cent - 37 percent on Santorum.
Although, Santorum served as a Senator for 12 years in Pennsylvania, he trails Obama 48 per cent - 41 per cent in the Keystone State, according to the poll. Romney actually fares better there, down just 45 per cent - 42 per cent.
This vital trio of states is of significant importance on the general election map, as no candidate since 1960 has concluded his journey at the White House without winning at least two of the three.
"President Barack Obama is on a roll in the key swing states. If the election were today, he would carry at least two states," the New York Daily News quoted said Peter A. Brown of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute, as saying.
"And if history repeats itself, that means he would be reelected," he added.
Obama won all three states in 2008, and has poured time and resources into the battlegrounds again this year. (ANI)
