While President Barack Obama is virtually tied with Republican Mitt Romney in some Ohio polls, he holds a commanding lead among early voters in one new survey today.
Among Ohioans who have not yet voted, the candidates are in a dead heat, both garnering 45 percent support, according to a Time Magazine poll.
But among respondents who say they’ve already voted, Obama doubles up on Romney by 60-30 percent, Time finds.
Counting both Ohioans who say they will head to the polls on Nov, 6, and those who already have cast a ballot, Obama holds a 49-44 percent lead, the Time survey shows.
Early voting began Oct. 2 in Ohio and runs through Nov. 5.
About a third of Ohioans voted early in 2008, Time reports.
The poll’s margin of error is plus or minus three percentage points.
