WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama is heading toward Election Day with an apparent lead over Republican Mitt Romney among early voters in key states that could decide the election.

But Obama's advantage isn't as big as the one he had over John McCain four years ago, and that gives Romney's campaign hope that the former Massachusetts governor can erase the gap in Tuesday's election.

About 25 million people already have voted in 34 states and the District of Columbia. No votes will be counted until Election Day but several battleground states are releasing the party affiliation of people who have voted early.

So far, Democratic voters outnumber Republicans in Florida, Iowa, Nevada, North Carolina and Ohio. Republicans have the edge in Colorado.

    While more registered Democrats have cast an early ballot it would only take 2 or 3 percent to vote for Romney instead of Obama to turn the tide.

    Yes but how many of those democrats voted for Romney? I see signs in peoples yards who had Obama sign 4 years ago and now they have Romney signs. Same people but have a change of heart and want a different President this time.
