A Quinnipiac University survey released Wednesday shows Obama with a 51 percent to 45 percent lead in Florida over presumed Republican nominee Mitt Romney, a 53-42 percent lead in Pennsylvania, and the president leads his GOP challenger by a margin of 50 percent to 44 percent in Ohio.
No one has won the White House since 1960 without winning at least two of the states.
Quinnipiac surveyed 1,177 like voters July 24-30 in Florida, 1,193 in Ohio and 1,168 in Pennsylvania. The margin of error in the Florida and Pennsylvania surveys was 2.9 percentage points and 2.8 percentage points in Ohio.
