Hot in Cincinnati

No Republican has ever lost Ohio and won the White House, and based on new polls, Romney has work to do in the Buckeye State. A University of Cincinnati poll found that 49 percent of voters support Obama and 46 percent back Romney. A Quinnipiac University/New York Times/CBS News poll gives the president a 50 to 44 percent edge over his rival.
