Barack Obama and Mitt Romney are tied at 49 percent in Ohio, according to a new poll from the Cincinnati Enquirer and the Ohio News Organization. Here's more from the Enquirer:
That’s a slip for the president, who took 51 percent of likely voters in the newspaper group’s September poll.
Romney’s support grew among males, among high school and college graduates and among respondents in every age category except 18 to 29.
The two candidates also tied in scaring voters – 29 percent of poll respondents said they’d be scared if Obama won, and the same amount said they’d be scared if Romney won. Half said they were very enthusiastic about voting, 21 percent said they were not so enthusiastic or not enthusiastic at all.
The Real Clear Politics average for Ohio shows Obama with a 1.9-point lead over Romney.
