McCain closes gap on Obama in Ohio, Fla., poll shows



Published: Thu, July 31, 2008 @ 2:06 p.m.

COLUMBUS — Presumptive Republican presidential candidate U.S. Sen. John McCain closed the margins with Democratic frontrunner U.S. Sen. Barack Obama among likely voters in three swing states, according to a new poll.

Obama, D-Ill., still led McCain, R-Ariz., in Ohio (46 percent-44 percent), Pennsylvania (49 percent-42 percent) and Florida (46 percent-44 percent) among voters questioned by the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute over the past week. Poll results were released today.

But the differences were a lot closer than a month ago. And Florida and Ohio, according to the institute, are still “too close to call.”

“The $64,000 question is whether Sen. John McCain’s surge is a result of Sen. Obama’s much-publicized Middle Eastern and European trip or just a coincidence that it occurred while Sen. Obama was abroad,” Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the institute said in a release.
