Obama takes lead in three swing states

President Obama narrowly leads Mitt Romney in three critical swing states, according to NBC-Marist polls out this morning. 

The president currently holds a four-point advantage over Romney in Florida and Virginia and a larger six-point lead in Ohio. In all three cases, though, Obama has yet to top the key 50% threshold and his margin has fallen since the last polls in March.

Obama does, however, hold a 10-plus point advantage among women voters in all three states, while Romney maintains a small lead with men.

Obama won these three states in 2008.
