The latest bi-partisan Purple Strategies poll of key swing states finds Romney competitive but slightly trailing in the battleground states. Their Florida sample, though, (MoE +/- 4/.1%) is the first poll since the Times/Herald poll in January to show Obama trailing - with 47 percent support for Romney among likely voters and 45 percent for the president.
More from Florida:
Obama's approval/disapproval: 46/50
Romney favorability/unfavorability: 45/44
Economy getting better/worse: 33/38
Plenty of jobs locally/difficult for find jobs locally: 14/77
In future, jobs and salary will be: Worse - 45%; The same - 20%; Better - 26%; Not sure - 9%
