PPP, a Democrat-leaning firm, came out with a new poll tonight showing President Barack Obama leading GOP nominee Mitt Romney in Ohio by 4 points, 49-45.
Six percent of the respondents were undecided. Historically, in a race with an incumbent, undecided voters break heavily toward the challenger, and PPP found evidence that this will probably be the case in Ohio:
Why I don't think it's over in Ohio- Obama approval 48/49 overall, and 13/65 among undecideds: http://t.co/rbRaRWAR

In other words, only 13 percent of undecided respondents said Obama is doing a good job, whereas 65 percent said he stinks. By comparison, Romney’s favorability rating among undecided resppondents was a relatively even 26/37.
The news that Ohio is still in play was not warmly received by PPP’s liberal readers:
@ppppolls "a mistake to think based on recent polling in Ohio that the race is over," Are you trying to help Romney stay alive ? Idiots.

@ppppolls Obama up AT LEAST 8 in Ohio at the moment. You've overcompensated your sample to appease your trolls. No way Romney favs above 40
