CINCINNATI - The latest Ohio Poll conducted by the University of Cincinnati shows President Obama with a two-point lead over Republican Mitt Romney in the Buckeye State, within the poll’s margin of error of plus or minus 2.9 percentage points.
Forty-eight percent of likely voters plan to vote for Obama, 46 percent plan to vote for Romney, two percent plan to vote for Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson, and two percent say they will select another candidate on the ballot.
An additional two percent are undecided about who they will vote for president.
Obama maintains a larger lead in another poll released Wednesday.
The president led Romney 50 percent to 45 percent, according to a Quinnipiac University/New York Times/CBS News poll. Romney has disputed the findings, alleging Quinnipiac's methodology overestimates Democratic voter turnout.
Also, UC's Ohio Poll found that Democratic incumbent Sherrod Brown is leading in the U.S. senatorial race against Republican challenger Josh Mandel.
Forty-nine percent of likely voters say they will vote for Brown, 44 percent say they will vote for Mandel and four percent say they will vote for Independent Scott Rupert. An additional three percent are undecided about who they will vote for U.S. Senate.
These findings are based on the latest Ohio Poll, conducted by the Institute for Policy Research at the University of Cincinnati.
These findings are based on the most recent Ohio Poll, conducted Oct. 25-30. A random sample of 1,182 likely voters from throughout the state were interviewed by landline telephone and cellular telephone.
In 95 of 100 cases, the statewide estimates will be accurate to plus or minus 2.9 percent.
In addition to sampling error, there are other sources of variation inherent in public opinion studies, such as non-response, question wording, or context effects that can introduce error or bias.
