Obama Pulls Ahead in Battleground States

Just hours before the start of the first presidential debates, President Obama appears to have the edge among likely voters in three crucial battleground states. In three separate NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Marist polls released Oct. 3, the president narrowly leads Mitt Romney 47 to 46 percent in Florida, 48 percent to 46 percent in Virginia and 51 to 43 percent in Ohio.
