Democrat Barack Obama is pulling ahead of his Republican rival John McCain in two key swing states of Iowa and Minnesota, but remains in a dead heat in Ohio, a new poll said Wednesday. The biggest margin was in Iowa, where 55 percent of the 912 people polled said they would be more likely to vote for Obama compared with 40 percent for McCain, in the CNN-Time poll carried out from Saturday to Tuesday.
