The critical battleground state of Ohio remains a draw, with President Obama holding a one-point lead in the first post-debate survey of the contest there, according to the latest Rasmussen Reports survey.

The telephone survey of likely Ohio voters, taken Thursday night, finds Obama with 50 percent support to Mitt Romney’s 49 percent. One percent likes another candidate, and another one percent  is undecided.

But perhaps the most positive sign in the poll for former Mass. Gov. Mitt Romney is that 92 percent of likely voters who say that they are certain to go to the polls on Election Day, he leads 51 percent to Obama's 48 percent. Among the 83 percent who have already made up their minds how they will vote, Romney tops Obama 52 to 48 percent.

Obama leads among those (17 percent)  "who could still change their minds between now and Election Day," according to the Rasmussen survey.

Romney also did well on the question of who could best handle the economy.

Ohio voters trusted Romney more than the president  in September on handling the economy by a slight 48 percent to 46 percent margin. In the latest poll, Romney now leads 49 to 45 percent.

On national security, Romney edges Obama 48 to 47 percent. That's compared to last month, when Obama had a five-point lead.
