Ahead of the November 6 election, Republican challenger Mitt Romney is maintaining a small lead over incumbent Barack Obama who, however, still has a “narrow advantage” in key battleground states, say opinion polls.

Romney has a lead of five points over Obama in Gallup’s rolling daily tracking, while in RealClearPolitcs, he has a lead of just 0.9 points.

The Washington Post-ABC poll says the Republican nominee has a one-point lead.

However, in the key battleground state of Ohio, Obama was leading by four points, according to CNN, which said the race here is still close.

Obama’s double entendre ad

A suggestive Internet ad that backs Obama and speaks to young women about their “first time” — voting — went viral Friday, drawing conservative ire for its racy double entendre.

“Your first time shouldn’t be with just anybody. You want to do it with a great guy,” indie TV starlet Lena Dunham confides to the camera in the one-minute campaign ad, called ‘Your First Time’.

But the 26-year-old pixie-cut brunette, who is creator and lead character of the HBO series Girls, isn’t discussing sex; she has politics on mind, and it’s an Obama advertisement clearly aimed at young female voters.
