Poll: Demo vote in swing states shows dramatic rise

Swing voters trust Obama more on Medicare

Voters who control the 105 electoral votes in swing states are eager to respond to the challenge of selecting the next President, a poll shows. 

Tepid voter enthusiasm in the 12 swing states most likely to decide the presidential race has risen by large percentages, more especially among Democratic voters, according to a recent Gallup poll.

A pollsters' quiz given in the third week of this month showed an overall increase of 13 points among those who indicated they are very enthusiastic about voting in the November election.

In other matters, polls show that voters trust President Obama more by a wide margin to protect their prospects of receiving medical care under the Medicare plan when they reach retirement age than they do Governor Romney.

In the swing states of Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Wisconsin, 50 percent indicated they trust the President more than do the 44 percent who indicated they prefer Mr. Romney. Nationally, 51 percent prefer Mr. Obama to shepherd their needs for elderly health care over the 43 percent who chose Mr. Romney's brand of stewardship.
