(KCEN) -- The campaign trail is hitting the battleground state of Ohio today.
And President Obama has a good lead.
In fact the President has an eight point lead according to the Washington Post.
Mitt Romney will also be in Ohio, talking about jobs and taxes.
Romney says the president's current plan to raise taxes will not help the economy.
But his pitch for 12 million more jobs will be a tough one to make with Ohio's unemployment rate lower than the national average.
Romney's running mate Paul Ryan accompanied him on a two-day bus tour through Ohio yesterday and agreed with what Romney had to say.
Ryan said, "After four years of getting the runaround, what America needs is a turnaround."
The President is releasing another ad today, slamming Romney for dismissing the 47 percent of Americans who don't pay taxes.
Romney's new ad today will focus on struggling American families.
