Romney in Front in Florida, Obama Leads Nation
Mitt Romney the Republican White House hopeful has a 4% lead in Florida, an important swing state, a new Wednesday poll showed. However, nationwide President Obama holds a lead overall. Over the past couple of weeks, Romney has cemented his nomination for the Republican Party and has turned his full attention to his matchup against Obama in the president election to be held November 6.
The picture overall in Florida is very positive for Romney who leads by 13 points among male voters and is one point behind among female voters. Political observers and experts believe that about 12 states including Florida, New Hampshire, Ohio, Colorado and North Carolina will decide the outcome in November.
One Democratic pollster said that President Obama only had a 50/50 change of winning reelection. So many things have happened yet very little has changed and that means the race will be neck and neck said the pollster.
A Tuesday poll showed that the two candidates were tied when it came to who could best fix the economy, while Obama edged out Romney 49% to 46% in a poll held by ABC News. A poll taken by NBC showed that only one of three people feel the economy would improve over the next 12 months. That number is five points lower than it was during April and seven points lower than in March.
Another poll, that tracks daily results daily, has recorded dramatic swings during the campaign, showed that Obama was nearly tied with Romney on Wednesday.
