Obama Maintains Lead in Nevada, New Hampshire and North Carolina

Mitt Romney continues to trail in every single swing state. The latest NBC/WSJ/Marist polls show Obama with a small two point lead in Nevada and North Carolina. Obama holds a seven point lead in New Hampshire.

Marist (9/23-25)
Barack Obama 49%
Mitt Romney 47%
Other 1%
Undecided 3%

North Carolina
Marist (9/23-25)
Barack Obama 48%
Mitt Romney 46%
Other 1%
Undecided 5%

New Hampshire
Marist (9/23-25)
Barack Obama 51%
Mitt Romney 44%
Other 1%
Undecided 4%

The polling also confirms that Romney has lost his previous advantage on the economy. In Nevada and North Carolina, the two candidates are basically tied on the question of who would better handle the economy. In New Hampshire, Obama has a small edge on the issue.

While there is no silver lining in this set of polling data for Romney, there is one piece of good new for Republicans. In the Nevada Senate race, the poll found Republican Dean Heller is at 49 percent while Democrat Shelley Berkley is at 43 percent. It is one of the few competitive Senate races that seems to be going relatively well for the Republican Party right now.
