Quinnipiac: Virginia, Florida too close to call, Obama up 5 in Ohio

President Barack Obama and Republican Mitt Romney are locked in too-close-to-call races in the key states of Virginia and Florida, a new Quinnipiac poll showed Wednesday.

Obama is up by 1 in Florida, 48-47, but that's down from his 9 percentage point lead a month ago. Florida has 29 electoral votes, and 270 are needed to win.

The president's lead also narrowed in Virginia, where he now leads by 2. That's down from 5 earlier this month.

One bit of good news for Obama: He's maintained his 5 percentage point lead in Ohio, which many analysts think could be the key to victory.

The polls were conducted Oct. 23 to 28.
