The momentum remains firmly in the Romney camp as election day draws ever closer.  Apparently, Obama beat Mitt so badly in those last two debates, that he still can’t stop the bleeding at the polls.

Now, for the first time, Romney has taken the lead in the Presidential race in Ohio.

Via Rasmussen (h/t Jim):

The race for Ohio’s Electoral College votes remains very close, but now Mitt Romney now has a two-point advantage.

The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Ohio Voters shows Romney with 50% support to President Obama’s 48%. One percent (1%) likes some other candidate, while another one percent (1%) remains undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Ohio remains a Toss-Up in the Rasmussen Reports Electoral College Projections. Based on the current projections, Romney would have to win Wisconsin if he loses Ohio in order to move into the White House.

The candidates have been locked in a very tight battle in Ohio since August. A week ago, Romney and Obama were tied in the Buckeye State with 48% support each. This is the first time Romney has taken even a modest lead in the race.

While a modest disparity, all indicators are pointing toward Romney’s momentum carrying all the way up until election day.

Mitt-mentum baby!
