Sounds like they did the poll down south. In Northwest Florida President Obama should pull about 28% of the vote.

Mitt Romney’s Magic Mormon Underwear protects him from the evils of the world including socialism, illegal immigrants, homosexuals and taxes on his wealth. Can these sacred garments also make it rain down enough cash for a victory in this race since well over 90% of public offices are bought in our country by Big Money?

In our county in NW Florida President Obama got 23,653 votes to Senator McCain's 56,683 votes in 2008. I doubt if the President can even break the 20,000 mark this year. He just couldn't deliver all the free stuff to the type of folks that would consider voting for him.

Ron, there are far more voters in Miami/Dade than all the counties in NW Florida. Many of the residents of the NW counties you cite are already getting plenty of government largesse in the form of military retirement payments, Social Security and Medicare. If you checked just how many people in those counties rely on Food Stamps and Medicaid for their survival you might be in for a big surprize.

Can't Take it Anymore: Are you saying that Obama's supporters are those just looking for handouts?

Ron

No CTA, I am painfully aware of the fact that too many people are on the public dole. There are those that earned benefits and there are the others. We must strive to protect the programs that are necessary and curtail those that are just there to buy votes of non-productive citizens.

The President has been a disappointing failure; the economy is seized with over regulation and malaise. He must be replaced with a free market, friendly to business administration.

Things are very bad , getting worse and Americans have lost all the equity in their homes. There is no light at the tunnel with Mr. Obama.

GOP push poll. Rasmussen is the most inaccurate pollster in the country. Obama will win Florida. Bet on it.

...actually Rasmussen has proven to be the most accurate pollster in the last 2 prez elections. Feel free to research it yourself. I know you lefties are basically used to having things handed to you in the form of govt checks, but you'll have to do 10 mkinutes of actual "work" to verify how good Rasmussen is. Don't be afraid...10 minutes of work won't kill ya.

Daniel

Most accurate? Lol, get back on your meds, pal. Rasmussen had McCain leading in some of the most liberal states back in 2008. Rasmussen is the biggest pile of crap out there. But by all means, keep believing it. Its gonna make Nov. 7th all the more delicious.
