Battleground Stakes

Obama's "bad night" in Colorado, where he and Romney debated domestic policy issues, has turned into a bad week in the polls in key states. According to an NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Marist poll, Romney leads in Virginia (48 to 47 percent). In Florida, the president has a one-point lead (47 to 46 percent), but fares better in Ohio at 51 to 45 percent.
