Skip to comments.Obama Trails Romney in Florida Poll [Ignored by Florida Media]
Posted on 05/23/2012 4:45:43 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper
Mitt Romney now leads President Obama in the race for Florida's 29 electoral votes, a significant reversal from earlier this spring, according to a new Quinnipiac University poll released early on Wednesday.
Romney leads Obama overall, 47 percent to 41 percent, the poll shows. Two percent of voters prefer another candidate, 7 percent are undecided, and 3 percent said they would not vote. Three weeks ago, in another Quinnipiac poll, the two candidates were statistically tied, with Romney at 44 percent and Obama at 43 percent.

[ I know of 5 people. A homo doctor, 1 homo nurse, 2 homo realtor partners, and one of the stupidest college students you will ever meet. She doesnt even know who Pelosi or Reid are and cant name the VP. Pathetic. ]
Next time they call you a “retarded tea bagger” ask them if they can name who their state reps and governor and VP and who their Regularion Czar is?
Then watch them sit there and short circuit like a computer being glitched by Captain kirk.
The only real good poll, outside of Election Day, is Rassmussen.
This is very encouraging news. Obama nearly lost Florida in 2008 and can ill afford to lose it this time.
Note to self, as much as I want to watch FOX news on election night, I think it will be more entertaining to watch the MSM and Chirssy Mathews crying....
I see the FUMR crowd in our midst is well-represented there.
omitting a story, blockading information, is a way of spining the meme.
this way they only report pro-obama, obliterate anti-obama, and so only pro-obama hits the search engines.
Also of interest is that 2000 plus dead voters have been removed from the roster statewide. While our voter id laws make in person voting nearly impossible dead folks, it won’t stop absentee voting. even more important is an effort to purge the rolls of illegals http://miami.cbslocal.com/2012/05/09/exclusive-florida-investigating-potential-non-citizen-voters/ . The Broward county SOE has been dragged kicking and screaming to task of dealing with this. Given that the margin in 2000 was 542 votes, this is in biden’s words...a BFD.
Now if we could only figure out how stop the practice of nursing home employees ordering and filling out ballots for the elderly who are either mentally or physically unable to prevent this, we could stop a few thousand more illegal votes.
True. Then we had a sudden economic crisis that voters blamed entirely on the GOP, and we had a senile old goat with no horn for a Presidential candidate who essentially ceded the race.
Things are different now. This year we win.
This is good. Ignoring means they’re scared. But they’re not scared enough yet. Somebody important has to totally wig out. Then you know that it’s over for the Dems.
I think this gay thing will simply kill Obama in a way that few people seem to appreciate.
At this point in his Presidency, after 3.5 years of divisiveness and stagnation, he comes out with this big cynical highly-orchestrated ploy that has nothing to do with the American people in general being able to support their families and secure their own future.
I think this makes people look at every single thing the guy says and does and ask "What's the scam?"
Stimulus, Obamacare, green energy, global warming, Trayvon Martin, war on women, contraception, occupy whatever, Bain, etc., etc.
Every single thing he says and does has been diminished by the utterly transparent cynicism of his gay scam.
Aren’t you wondering why? Biden is out in full force lately so he can do himself in. Enter Hill/Bill one way or another. That’s the ticket imho. If O has to be a sacrificial lamb, he will go willingly. The left is mad crazy scared right now that their big plans may go up in smoke without a win in November. Including the lamestream.
OK, thanks for the info. I understand that Florida suffers from a huge influx of illegals too....I wonder what effect that has on the voting population vis a vis Dem support.
Well these fools should have been outraged over Homosexuals in the Military before this issue
The MSM will be too preoccupied reporting 24/7 on the riots and will spend very little time on Obama's loss!
Low poll numbers actually help Obama. If his popularity is low, Democrats will feel compelled to get out and vote. If his numbers are high, they are less likely to get motivated because they figure his numbers are high enough and he doesn’t need thier vote.
He can afford to lose it, it’s Romney who needs to win it (and OH and VA).
They also have Mack the Lesser back up (by 1) over Half Nelson.
Rasmussen has proven its polling is best in the business.
Romney needs to beat Obama because the nation needs to turn the ship around and it ain’t going to be easy or pretty to do so.
Never fear they will do their damnedness.
its increasingly likely that WI will go republican this year.
On VA and NC, and even FL, I agree with you. Wisonsin? I’m not so sure. They’re pretty Blue when it comes to Presidential Politics.
Rick Perry was my candidate but maybe not as veep.
I’ve wondered so many times how people could vote for Obama being the lying, two-faced Marxist that he is. By the same degree, I wonder how people can still even consider Rick Perry for anything after he showed America how dumb he was during the Presidential Primaries. He embarrassed the State of Texas and he will NOT be elected Gov. again; promise. The “good ol’ boy” political machine in the TX GOP has kept him in office all these years, but, no more; not again.
If Romney can take FL and some of the midwest the kenyan is toast.
If Romney wins FL, NC, VA, and OH..... turn out the lights Zero, the party’s over.
Next time they call you a retarded tea bagger ask them if they can name their state reps and governor and VP
Obama nearly lost Florida in 2008 and can ill afford to lose it this time.
Floridians tell me that Obama does not have a chance in hell of winning FL this time. If Romney takes NC, VA, FL and OH, he will be moving into the White House; guaranteed.
Obama’s number will be dramatically lower this time than in ‘08. People are disillusioned and disgusted with him. They feel that they were snookered and betrayed by him. AND THEY WERE. Even the Blacks will not turn out this time like they did in ‘08. He will get the same percentage of the Black vote but there will not be as many Blacks voting. He’ll get 95% of 10 Million Black votes this time instead of 95% of 15 Million Black votes. I guarantee you there will be 5 million less Black votes this go round.
At the risk of insulting you, I must say that, as a Texan, I was disappointed in Perry’s lack of success in the primaries and he did make some goofs, but if you think he is dumb, then you are dumber than you think he is.
He is still very popular in Texas and WILL win again if he decides to run.
If you read the Texas media, you would think everyone hates him because THEY do.
He has been an outstanding governor and the success of Texas in business and otherwise proves it. He had some fabulous ideas for running the federal government that were far better and more conservative than any advanced by any of the other candidates. They were just a little too conservative and revolutionary for the masses.
You might want to get a little more informed before you make sweeping statements that you know little about.
Well, as my mama used to say: “Time tells all.” He will have a Republican opponent next go ‘round (if he even runs) and the “good ol’ boy” GOP, political machine will not be able to pull him through this time.
BTW, the first “goof” as you call it was in his first Debate when each candidate was asked what it was that they could bring to the White House that no other candidate could bring. Perry’s response was: “The most beautiful Fist Lady to ever come to the White House, my beautiful wife Anita”. Then he stood there with a silly grin on his face. The audience did not know how to respond and finally applauded politely because she isn’t all that “hot”. The moderator looked stunned at such a stupid answer; especially in light of the other intelligent responses from the other candidates. That was the beginning of Texas’ most embarrassing era in history.
I will say this in his behalf, however. I do appreciate the fact that he is a committed Christian. But, the last time I voted for a “committed, born-agin Christian” was 1976. The worst political mistake of my life.
