Obama’s Lead in Ohio Polls

Barack Obama continues to hold a lead in Ohio by 5 points in the RealClearPolitics rolling average.  Most recently was an 8 point edge for Obama among likely voters by WeAskAmerica.   My head says that Romney will win Ohio, my heart certainly hopes so, but then why are these state polls showing a consistent Obama lead?

WeAskAmerica polls include automated phona calls in addition to the standard live-person polling.  They unfortunately do not break down their results by demographics or region, only by party.  And it is here that we see that 19% of Republicans claim they will vote for Barack Obama.  Really?  WeAskAmerica realized that this result does not seem credible, yet this is what this particular set of numbers say.
