Mitt Romney is hot on President Obama’s heels.

A new Quinnipiac University poll shows the presumed Republican presidential candidate in a virtual tie with Obama in the key, battleground states of Florida and Ohio.

Just a month ago, Obama was ahead in both states.

In the Sunshine State, 44% of likely voters favored Romney, compared to 43% for Obama, according to the survey, which was released Thursday. In March, the President led the state by seven points.

And in Ohio, Obama’s lead — at six points in March — has shrunk, too. The President accrued 44% to Romney’s 42%.

Both of the state’s results came within the margin of error of plus or minus 2.9 percentage points.
