The president is ahead by 6 percentage points in Ohio and Florida and 11 in Pennsylvania. Voters ranked both candidates fairly evenly when asked about their ability to manage the economy, but Romney's campaign is being hampered by worries about his time at Bain Capital and his not releasing more tax returns.
