-- A month ago, Romney led on handling the economy in all three states, but the President has cut into those leads and the two candidates are now running much closer on this measure.
--In the aftermath of events in Libya and the Middle East, President Obama has the advantage on managing an international crisis and has the edge on national security in Virginia and Wisconsin.
--While pluralities view Barack Obama’s policies as favoring the middle class, in all three states most voters see Mitt Romney’s policies as benefiting the rich.
--The gender gap remains: men support Romney and women support Mr. Obama. The President maintains his lead among younger voters, and has pulled ahead among senior voters in Wisconsin. White voters without a college degree continue to support Romney in all three states. Independents back Romney in Virginia and Wisconsin, but are more divided in Colorado.
