Two Polls Show Obama Leading Republicans In Virginia

In 2008 Obama won the electoral vote 365-173. It was a blowout, largely because he succeeded in flipping a combination of red states and swing states that voted for Bush in 2004. Those states are FL, OH, VA, NC, IA, CO, IN, NV and NM. In 2012, Obama only needs to keep a combination of those states, especially critical swing states like FL, OH, VA and NC to get re-elected. That shouldn't be difficult.
I noted a week or so back that Virginia was one of six states that the GOP had to win in November if they were going to win the Presidential election. Well it’s early, but things are not looking good in the Old Dominion at the moment. Two polls out this week have the President beating both Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum in the state after a period in which the prospective November race in the state was much closer and more favorable for the GOP.
