According to some other polls, about 32% of the Ohio voters have already cast their votes and the President leads 62% to the 36% of those voters. Mitt Romney is expected to gain a lead amongst the Ohioans who still plan to cast their votes; provided they get to the polls on the Election Day. If Romney fails to win in Ohio, he has to win in Wisconsin, the new Ohio, to move to the White House.

Romney’s narrow lead and trustworthiness in some Ohio poll are mainly based on some crucial factors like job creation, dealing with economy and energy policy.
