"Most Miami-Dade voters back term limits for commissioners and bonds for schools, but their support for President Obama — while leading Republican Mitt Romney — is fading, a Miami Herald poll shows."

".....In the presidential race, Obama leads Romney among likely voters in Miami-Dade by a margin of 52 percent to 43 percent, the Herald survey found. But that might not be good news for the president: Four years ago, Obama pummeled GOP challenger John McCain by a 58-42 margin in Miami-Dade, helping Obama overcome McCain’s support in the more conservative areas of north Florida and win the state’s electoral votes.

“Given that Obama only carried the state by three points [in 2008], he can’t afford to underperform” in Miami-Dade, Coker said.

Romney has a huge 29-point lead over Obama among Miami-Dade’s Hispanic voters, making Miami-Dade an outlier from the rest of the country, where Obama has overwhelming support among Hispanics. The difference can be attributed largely to Cuban-American voters, 76 percent of whom support Romney, the poll found. Only 19 percent of Cuban voters in Miami-Dade said they are supporting Obama....."

The Miami people will not turn out to vote. Obama is recognized as a loser and there is no need to make an effort to go vote for him this go round.

The fact that hope has been lost and that there is no change yields apathy. Voter apathy is the Obama killer
