Miami Herald FL Poll: Romney 51% – Obama 45%
Mitt Romney has maintained a solid lead over President Barack Obama in the latest Miami Herald/El Nuevo Herald poll of likely voters who favor the Republican by six percentage points.
Romney’s strengths: independent voters and more crossover support from Democrats relative to the Republicans who back Obama, according to the survey conducted by Mason-Dixon Polling & Research.
Romney’s crossover appeal is fueled by strong support in rural North Florida, a conservative bastion where a relatively high percentage of Democrats often vote Republican in presidential election years.
Ouch via Miami Herald FL Poll.
Miami Herald poll crushing for Obama. Romney campaign will hope it portends something beyond Floridamiamiherald.typepad.com/nakedpolitics/…
