itt 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.
