WASHINGTON- A new Survey USA poll in Ohio, which oversampled democrats by six percent, shows a virtual tie between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney with Obama leading by one point within the survey's margin of error. The most troubling signs for the president is that his support is only 45 percent. Romney leads among married voters while Obama leads among single voters. Ohio voters say Romney would do a better job balancing the budget while they remain split on who would do a better job at keeping America safe. With such a tie election, independent voters may end up being the key to winning and those voters are breaking sharply for Romney . 12 percent still are undecided. Romney leads by seven among men while Obama leads by 11 among women. This state will be crucial to both candidates. Meantime, closer to home, new polling in Illinois Friday indicates Republican Walsh leading Duckworth in Illinois 8; Republican Dold leading Schneider 48 to 45 in Illinois 10; Republican Biggert leads Foster 47 to 44 in Illinois 11; Republican Plummer leads Enyart 44 to 42 in Illinois 12; Republican Davis leads Gill in Illinois 13 44 to 42 while Republican Schilling and Democrat Bustos are tied at 46 in Illinois 17th.
