Obama Up In Poll of Critical Battleground Voters In Virginia

Ahead of the official kickoff of his 2012 re-election campaign on Saturday, President Obama received some good news about Virginia.

He leads Mitt Romney in a recent poll of voters by a seven-point margin. In the Washington Post poll, President Obama earned 51% of voter support to Mitt Romney’s 44%.

If you don’t live in Virginia, then you may not get how important the state has become to winning the White House. Virginia was a key victory for the president in the 2008 race. It’s almost like the new Ohio and Florida — states that have become synonymous with hyper-campaigning and having the most pandered-to voters on the planet.

Ohio will share the Obama campaign’s spotlight with Virginia on Saturday. The president will make appearances in both states, speaking at The Ohio State University and Virginia Commonwealth University, respectively.

The president is not playing about aggressive campaigning and ads this election cycle. Please believe that.

Do you think the presidential campaigns focus too much or not enough on battleground states?
