Obama leading the polls

(WFLX) - Just six weeks to go until the Novemeber election, and a new poll out Wednesday shows President Obama gaining ground over Mitt Romney in some of the nation's largest swing states, including here in Florida.

In the poll, conducted by Quinnipiac University, the president received more than 50 percent of support in Pennslyvania, Ohio and Florida in a telephone survey of likely voters.

In all three states, more than half the residents said they believed Romney's policies favored the wealthy.
