FL poll: Mitt Romney 48%, Obama 47%

The latest Purple Strategies poll is out, and shows Mitt Romney with 48 percent support in Florida, and Barack Obama with 47 percent.

Note: The poll has a disproportionately high number of those who identify as Republicans, giving them a 38-37 lead over Democrats. Polls that use a how-do-you-identify-yourself methodology differ from polls that actually ask people how they're registered (the latter of which is preferred in Florida, a state with a solid voter registration system). More here on that. And most other party ID polls right now have more people identifying themselves as Democrats.
