President Obama holds slight leads among likely voters in Wisconsin and Virginia, while Republican challenger Mitt Romney is running ahead in Colorado, according to the latest installment Wednesday of Quinnipiac University/New York Times/CBS News polls of swing states.

Romney’s lead was 50 percent to 45 percent in Colorado. Obama was up 49 percent to 45 percent in Virginia, and 51 percent to 45 percent in Wisconsin.

The survey found that Obama’s chief advantage, as it has been throughout, is with women voters, while Romney benefits from a large gap with white, working class voters. The Times explores that finding in more depth here.

And for those who are intersted in digging into the crosstabs and demographics/weighting of the Q poll for individual states
