DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — As Mitt Romney joins running mate Paul Ryan in Ohio for two days of campaigning, a new poll suggests the Republican ticket has some ground to make up.

A Washington Post poll out today shows President Barack Obama leading Romney 52 to 44 percent among likely Ohio voters.

The poll also shows Obama with an advantage in another competitive state, Florida. But the findings suggest he’ll need to make a strong push to get his supporters to the polls in Florida. The Post poll finds 51 percent of likely Florida voters favor the president, while 47 percent are backing Romney. However, among all registered Florida voters, the poll gives Obama a 9 percentage point lead.

The president is following Romney to Ohio. He has campaign stops scheduled in the college towns of Bowling Green and Kent tomorrow.

Obama recorded an appearance on ABC’s “The View” with wife Michelle Obama today, highlighting things his administration has done to help the economy, such as bailing out U.S. automakers. He repeated his assertion that Romney’s would bring back policies that led to the financial crisis and recession in the first place.

Ryan held a town hall-style meeting in a steel plant in Cincinnati today, arguing that businesses will be hobbled if the president doesn’t bring government debt under control.
