A new poll indicates President Barack Obama's lead in Ohio has dwindled, but he is getting strong support from women.
The Quinnipiac University/CBS News poll released today put the Democratic president ahead of Republican Mitt Romney 50 percent to 45. Obama led 55-40 among women and Romney 51-44 among men. Romney led independent voters 49-42 percent.
Romney had more support among white voters, while blacks were heavily for Obama in the poll. A Quinnipiac survey Sept 26 had shown Obama with a 10-point lead.
The campaigns for the President Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney are busy this week as early voting begins. Emily McCord reports that both teams are launching bus tours and other efforts to get Ohioans to the polls.
