Bulletin Today | Politics Print Print

Exit polls for Ohio, widely considered a make-or-break state in the presidential race, show that GOP candidate Mitt Romney is ahead by a hair among voters ages 50 to 64, with 50 percent of their votes to 49 percent for President Obama. Among voters 65 and older, Romney leads by 55 percent to 44 percent.

Exit polls, it should be mentioned, are a snapshot of a small portion of the electorate, and the final results may differ considerably.
