CBS: President Obama leads Mitt Romney among likely voters in Ohio and Florida – and has a double-digit lead in Pennsylvania – according to a Quinnipiac University/CBS News/New York Times poll released this morning.

The poll shows Mr. Obama leading his presumptive Republican challenger 53 percent to 42 percent in Pennsylvania. The 11-point lead results largely from independents, who favor the president by 22 points, and women, who favor the president by 24 points.

Mr. Obama holds a six-point lead in Ohio, 50 percent to 44 percent, a state where he holds a campaign event later today. His lead here is also due in large part to women, who back him by a 21-point margin. Romney leads by ten points among Ohio men, and seven points among Ohio whites.

In Florida, Mr. Obama also holds a six point lead, 51 percent to 45 percent. He holds a small lead among both men and women and a 19-point lead among Hispanics, while Romney leads by double-digits among whites and voters age 65 and above.

The president is viewed more favorably in all three swing states, and is far more likely to be seen as caring about voters’ needs and problems….

….. Mr. Obama’s favorable rating is 50 percent or slightly higher in all three states. Romney’s favorable rating, meanwhile, hovers around 40 percent. In all three states the president’s favorable rating is higher than his unfavorable rating, while Romney’s unfavorable rating is higher than his favorable rating….

… One issue that’s dogged Romney is the release of his tax returns. He’s insisted the two years he’s released is plenty, however a majority of voters in all three states disagree with him. Just over 50 percent in each state say a candidate should release several years of tax returns while just under 20 percent in all three say one or two years of returns will suffice.
