Recent polls show President Barack Obama running slightly better now than at a comparable point in the 2008 election.

A Quinnipiac poll in Ohio shows Pres. Obama edging Romney by two percentage points (44% to 42%), a closer margin than in three polls conducted in late April. Surveys by Fox News, Rasmussen Reports and Purple Strategies give Pres. Obama leads ranging from four to six points. As of this writing, the HuffPost Pollster chart, based on all the Ohio polls, gives Obama a four-point lead (45.7% to 41.7%).

The President’s current standing is slightly better than at this point four years ago. According to the Pollster charts for 2008, summarized in the table below, John McCain led by just 0.4 percentage points in Ohio at this point four years ago.

In Ohio, Pres. Obama’s margin over Mr. Romney is two to five percentage points better than where it stood against Mr. McCain in mid-June 2008.
