CNN: Presidential race tightening in Ohio
 
With the economy sputtering and unemployment at an uncomfortably high 8.1 percent, the Fed is stepping in. That's "further confirmation that President Obama's policies have not worked," says Mitt Romney.

Mitt Romney is catching up to President Obama in the crucial battleground state of Ohio, according to a new poll from CNN/ORC International. The poll is the latest in a flurry of new data showing that Romney's strong debate performance last week gave his campaign a badly needed boost. Indeed, the latest Pew poll showed Romney with a four-point lead over Obama among likely voters nationwide, while Gallup said Romney enjoyed a two-point advantage with likely voters. However, the CNN poll, which showed Obama with a four-point edge over likely voters in Ohio, was seen as a rare bit of good news for the Obama campaign, since Ohio is considered a must-win for Romney in the race for 270 Electoral College votes.
