States elect presidents via the Electoral College, and new polls give President Obama the lead in three big ones.
  1. Ohio

  3. Virginia.
Obama leads Republican challenger Mitt Romney 50%-43% in Ohio, according to an NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Marist poll. No Republican has ever won a presidential election without winning Ohio.
