Skip to comments.Poll: Obama barely holding lead over Romney in Florida

Los Angeles Times - 2 hours ago By Mitchell Landsberg Florida, the state that bequeathed Bush vs. Gore to the American political lexicon, is once again evenly divided in a presidential race, according to a new statewide poll.

In the 2nd inning of a ballgame, who is up by a run doesn’t matter really.
If it’s the 7th inning, and the opposition is up by a run, I worry, but one run is nothing.
The 9th inning and up by a run really depends on your offense and your pitcher.
We have the GOP-e on offense, and Romney’s the pitcher.
It’s enough to make a true conservative weep.
That was before yesterday.
Don’t believe it is a split any more. Not for a minute.
600 registered voters, 41% dumbocrats, 37% GOP, 23% no party.
Mrs. Prince of Space
The survey of 600 registered Florida voters was conducted by telephone from May 6-8. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points.
This is a junk poll, designed to fit a predetermined outcome.
That is an absurd breakdown. A state that swept Deomocrats out at every level 18 months ago is give a 4% edge to democrats in the poll. Romney is up in Florida by a large margin based on this data.
Yes, it is.
The Republicans should pay their own house pollster to publish an equivalently absurd poll.
Just curious: why is it that everytime an unfavorable poll is posted, it is immediately disregarded as junk? The only think junk about it is the fact that 6 months is an eternity and who knows what the results will be after Labor Day, debates, etc.?
Also they used registered voters, not likely voters. Given what happened on Tuesday and yesterday afternoon, I bet that Romney has a 15 point lead now in FL.
Whats enough to make a guy weep is the fact that the only thing worse than Robama losing is Robama winning.
I doubt it. I don’t see there being that many single issue voters that are going to base their vote against gay marriage. I think Romney probably gets a small bump, but the issue will likely be inconsequential 6 months from now. With the economy still in the toilet, Israel/Iran, gas prices, and Europe, I really don’t see this election hinging on gay marriage.
My guess is if something was done to stop those damn New York City SNOWBIRDS from voting in the New York AND Flrodai elections, Romey would blow away Obama in FLorida.
But STILL, WHY is this so DAMN CLOSE??? It should be a no-brainer!!!
Honest to god, do only the stupidest New Yorkers move to Florida. I know there are a few good ones, but you have to be stone cold stupid to continue to support Obama at this point.
Beat me by a minute.
The funny thing is all these anti-gay marriage republicans who are ignoring that Romney is solidly on the side of gay marriage and gay unions. He signed the first gay marriage legislation in the country when he could have AT LEAST vetoed it.
And he’s made numerous claims of support for the gay agenda over the years.
Why are they railing against Obama on this?
Ozero is going to lose some of his black support in Fl over that stance. I was with a black dem elected official yesterday and his commentary was quite out of sync with Ozero’s stance on a wide number of issues and that was before he began speaking of the affects of God in his life.
Frankly, I’d rather see this guy in office than some of the RINOs we have now. Many in the black community do not support Ozero’s fag agenda and this may come to hurt him at the polls in Nov. Even if they don’t vote, every non vote for Ozero is a half vote for Rombama.
I have conducted a poll and the “results” are:
How can I get it published?
I’m not pinning my analysis on the gay marriage exclusively. The voting trends on Tuesday, the ecomonic conditions and issues and the skewness of the poll makes me beleive that it is not a dead heat in these battleground states. The MSM wants people to think that way and that is why they did this poll.
Registered voters, not likely voters. Look at the sampling.
This is a junk science poll designed to give the answer the pollster wanted.
Romney is winning in Florida is what this poll really says.
I surveyed our household this morning and 66% planned to vote for Romney. My dog is an adult but expressed no preference of either candidate, even when informed about Obama’s dietary choices. I considered him “undecided”.
