Support for GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney is ticking up in the key states of North Carolina, Missouri and Virginia, according to three new polls from Rasmussen Reports.

In North Carolina, Romney has opened up a 6-point lead after the second presidential debate, now leading President Barack Obama among likely voters by 52 percent to 46 percent. A survey a week earlier had Romney up by 3.

Romney holds a 14-point lead in North Carolina on the economy, and a 5-point margin on national security.

In Missouri, Romney now leads 54 percent to 43 percent, a significant improvement from his 3-point lead the previous week, 49 percent to 46 percent.

Romney has consistently held a lead over the president in Rasmussen polls in Missouri dating back to November.

On the economy, Missouri voters trust Romney more, by 54 percent to 43 percent, and he has a 5-point lead on national security.

In Virginia, support for Romney has hit the 50 percent mark. In a poll of likely voters taken after Tuesday's second presidential debate, the GOP challenger led the president 50 percent to 47 percent. A previous Rasmussen poll had Romney up by just 2, 49 percent to 47 percent.

Romney holds a lead in Virginia with men, women and independent voters, and more trust him to handle the economy. The president leads in the areas of national security and who better understands the issues of the middle class.
