(menafn – ecpulse) The Presidential race to the White House is tightening across many states showing Republican Mitt Romney took the advantage of 88 out of a total 270 electoral votes against the incumbent President Barack Obama, who scored 79 electoral votes for the quite moment!
Romney has so far won electoral votes in Oklahoma, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina, Tennessee, Kentucky, Indiana, West Virginia and Arkansas. Obama took the advantage in Illinois, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware, New Jersey District of Colombia, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Vermont and Maine.
Until now, recent polls signal Obama and Romney are too close to the Presidential call. World Media and other polls showed the democratic incumbent has a slight advantage in several vital swing states, most noticeably Ohio - that could give him the 270 electoral votes he needs to win.
Eyes are tensed over Ohio, a state that backed the winner in the last 12 elections!
The bellwether state is too close to the Presidential call and a loss there would be a major blow to the challengers campaign. Ohio poll has put Obama three points ahead of Romney on 51 percent to 48 percent.
