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.

Haven't seen a SINGLE REPORT on Obama's crashing poll numbers in Florida on the local ABC, CBS, FOX or NBC stations.
This is significant because Obama was 7 points up a month or two ago. 63% supposedly say Obama's full throated embrace of sodomy didn't change their vote. Of course that means it did change 37% of the vote....and I haven't seen how those people broke.
Come to think of it, the stellar Miami media has also IGNORED the story about the Catholic lawsuit against Obama.
Polls are useless as we’ve seen many times in the past. It’s who you poll, what you ask and how you ask it. The only results that matter is what happens on Tuesday, November 6, 2012.
This is not true. Good polling firms are pretty damn accurate.
This story is not being ignored by the Media.
It is being DELIBERATELY SPIKED.
I see some of the Florida Freepers are weighing in!
Would be interested to see the methodology of this poll. Many polls out there are undersampling Republicans or polling "registered" or "eligible" voters as opposed to "likely" voters.
The only polls that are meaningful are those that poll likely voters and those that take into consideration how voters in a given area are registered. For example, if Dade County has a registered voter distribution of 35% Dem, 32% Repub and 33% Independent, that is roughly how the sampling should be. The next county over might have a different makeup and the polling in that county should be adjusted accordingly.
As we get closer to the actual election, the above methodology is actually what the pollsters start using - as they want to protect their reputations. That's why most final polls are pretty much dead on. However, this far out, pollsters allow their biases to dictate how the polls come out, hoping to influence the final outcome.
I honestly thought that polls at this stage were going to show Obama well ahead ahead at this juncture in the battleground states, and if that was so, I would not be panicking because I would know that the margins would narrow as we got closer. The fact that most polls have the race as a dead heat or even Romney slightly ahead this far out does not bode well for Obama at all.
no... it just goes to show you the impact that Obama coming out of the closet had in some critical parts of the country.
“Hispanics have also trended toward Romney in the two surveys. The two candidates now run virtually even among Hispanic voters, with Obama at 42 percent and Romney 40 percent.”
“The Quinnipiac poll was conducted May 15-21, surveying 1,722 registered voters. The margin of error is +/- 2.4 percentage points.”
This is devastating news. Romney is running virtually even with Hispanics in FL and also this poll is of registered voters.
just because an issue isnt important to you, doesn’t mean that it isnt important to millions of others.
Looking at the results yesterday from KY and AR, I think VA and NC are lost for Obama. He will not win them again. If he loses FL, he’s done because it’s increasingly likely that WI will go republican this year.
Thanks SoFloFreeper. IOW, Rubio won’t be on the ticket.
Wild guess at this point? Rick Perry.
“Looking at the results yesterday from KY and AR, I think VA and NC are lost for Obama. He will not win them again.”
Which brings it down to either OHIO or MICHIGAN deciding who will be President.
The Fascist Obama Regime is pulling out ALL the stops now in Ohio, including fake corruption allegations.
It must be one of those “butterfly polls.” The questions confused senior citizens, who mistakenly said they supported Romney when they meant to say they supported Obama. Teams are being brought in to inspect each answer, and the Obama regime plans to take it all the way to the Supreme Court to overturn the poll results!
Polls don’t matter at this time. It has been said numerous times here months prior to an election. I can’t stand either person so none of this is good news. Hopefully someone can be nominated at the convention that does not have the name Romney.
I am thinking someone with midwestern roots to boost the ticket in Ohio, WI, etc. If Romney can take FL and some of the midwest the kenyan is toast.
Spiked big time.
Can you imagine the news reporting when obama loses big in November?
Heads exploding and pants wetting all over the media.
