With just over 3 weeks remaining until the November 6th election, Presidential polling has gotten a lot tighter, with the Presidents large lead having been eroded since the first debate.
Real Clear Politics now has the President ahead by just 10 Electoral College votes, with 146 up for grabs.
The NYT pollster has the President projected to win in the narrowest of fashions to date, too
Meanwhile, in Ohio, the race has tightened too, but remains a crucial firewall for the President
As you can see from the graph below, Mitt Romney has never led in Ohio
These polling leads in Ohio are confirmed by actual votes currently being cast early
A new poll shows President Obama with a commanding 59-31 percent lead among those who have already voted, with seven percent of those surveyed saying they have already cast their ballot.
A second poll, from PPP, showed similar results
The key finding on this poll may be how the early voters are breaking out. 19% of people say they've already cast their ballots and they report having voted for Obama by a 76-24 margin. Romney has a 51-45 advantage with those who haven't voted yet, but the numbers make it clear that he already has a lot of ground to make up in the final three weeks before the election.
The President is being projected to win Ohio by the NYT polling analyst, but by the smallest probability we have seen to date
