    Obama. He may be the socialist, foreign born Anti-Christ, but he's not nearly as crazy as the Romney Ryan two-step.

    Romney will win Florida and it won't be that close either.   I think Jews, Hispanics, and seniors are starting to see through the arrogant,  but essentially incompetent Obama we currently have as a president.

      I'd have to disagree...I think they are seeing through the farce that is the Romney/Ryan plan for medicare which is to essentially get rid of the benefits people will receive and give them coupons for discounts...lts privateize 401k to...why not?

    Obama. Romney called my Florida voting parents moochers because they are retired.  Ryan wants to gut medicaid.  No amount of promising to bomb Iran is going pull Florida Thurston Howell Romney's way. And Latinos can smell a spray tan a mile away.  Too bad he wasn't Mexican.  Ha ha yuck yuck.

    Obama is more likely to win. He is slightly ahead in Florida. He is winning overall. Romney's lead with seniors has dropped 16 points! in the last two weeks. Ryan, speaking recently in Florida, was hit with a bit of booing. Additionally, Obama is up with independents (11 points), moderates (33 points), 18-29 year-olds (36 points), and Hispanics (42 points). You can't win without voters. The only hope for Romney is keeping voters away from the polls which they are trying very hard to accomplish with the litany of voter restrictions they are attempting to enact. This could, however, backfire on them. People are on to their attempt to cheat to victory and it could drive even more people to the polls to try and send these neanderthals back to their caves.

      Sorry about that, but with open bigotry, social policies from the dark ages, rejecting science, and the penchant for clubbing people over the head vs. holding a dialog, I'm not sure neanderthal isn't an accurate descriptor.

    Right now, most media polls show that Obama is ahead in Florida. However, most of these polls have a higher percentage of Democrats than the percentage who voted in 2008. The polls are therefore expecting that Democrats are more enthusiatic for Obama today, in 2012, than they were in 2008.  I don't think that's an assumption that's likely to prove true on election day. November 6. Thus, I think you have to "unskew" the polls to get at where the candidates stand today. In the unskewed poll for Florida, Governor Romney is currently ahead by between 5 and 7%. Nationally, his lead ranges from 7% to 8%.

      That's because the Democrats are rising as the Republicans are shrinking.  The number of angry old white men is getting smaller. That's the "skew".  Anything else is fantasy.

      Honestly, from what I have heard this is just a new tactic to try to distract people from a widening gap to keep them interested in the race and not lose any enthusiasm...both parties do it when they are losing. Romney did it when losing to mcain too

    I believe Romney will win Florida and almost every other swing state. Romney's got the better ideas and more money down the stretch when it counts. I don't believe Obama can win with an economy in this much trouble, also I believe Romney voters are more energized than Obama voters.

      not desrving of a downvote because I disagree but apparently Romney is running out of money because much of what was raced was for the RNC and not for his campaign...they took a loan out recently to pay for bills...also, Obama has a strong lead
