Wednesday’s campaign round-up


Today’s installment of campaign-related news items that won’t necessarily generate a post of their own, but may be of interest to political observers:

* AFSCME, a leading labor union, has unveiled three new videos featuring public-service workers with jobs near one of Mitt Romney’s homes. This one introduces Temo Fuentes, who repairs fire trucks.

* In national polling, there are plenty of results to choose from. NBC has President Obama up by three points among likely voters, 49% to 46%; NPR shows Obama up by seven, 51% to 44%; and National Journal shows Obama and Romney tied at 47% each.

* In Florida, NBC shows Obama up by one point, 47% to 46%, while a Suffolk poll shows Obama ahead by three, 46% to 43%.

* In Ohio, NBC shows Obama’s lead reaching seven points, 51% to 43%.

* In Virginia, NBC puts Obama ahead by only two, 48% to 46%, while a Roanoke College poll shows the president leading by eight, 47% to 39%.

* In New Hampshire, Public Policy Polling shows Obama ahead by seven, 51% to 44%.

* Priorities USA Action, a pro-Obama super PAC, is shifting its focus away from Wisconsin and Florida, and investing more heavily in Colorado, Iowa, Nevada, and Virginia.
