NEW POLLS HAVE OBAMA UP IN 3 SWING STATES October 2, 2008

      The Illinois senator is now leading Republican nominee John McCain in Ohio, Florida and Pennsylvania – which together offers 68 of the 270 electoral votes needed for victory on Election Day Nov. 4.     

       The new surveys show Obama leading McCain in Florida 51 percent to 43 percent, in Ohio 50 percent to 42 percent and in Pennsylvania 54 percent to 39 percent. Since 1960, no president has been elected without winning two of those three states.       

       Pollsters attributed Obama’s bounce to the public’s general approval of his debate performance, antipathy toward GOP vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin and heightened confidence in the Illinois senator’s ability to handle the current economic crisis.
