    Swing states poll: Amid barrage of ads, Obama has edge

    In a new USA TODAY/Gallup Poll of swing states, an overwhelming majority of voters remember seeing campaign ads over the past month; most voters in other states say they haven't. In the battlegrounds, one in 12 say the commercials have changed their minds about President Obama or Republican Mitt Romney — a difference on the margins, but one that could prove crucial in a close race.
    At this point, Obama is the clear winner in the ad wars. Among swing-state voters who say the ads have changed their minds about a candidate, rather than just confirmed what they already thought, 76% now support the president, vs. 16% favoring Romney.

    more proof the democrats are the ones buying the election.

    no matter how much obama claims to be the underdog he has more money,and romneys personal money isnt crap compared to campaign money,and romney is facing the man who raised 3/4 of a billion last election.,i have no doubt obama would take money again from unsavory people to win,and i have no doubt die hard democrats will defendhim taking money while condemning romney for doing the same.

    Surprising how many people rely on ads to dictate the direction of their vote.
