NBC FL poll: Obama 49- Romney 47

From NBC, whose poll looks rather different from a Miami Herald poll showing a 6-point Mitt Romney lead:

In the Sunshine State, 63 percent say they have already voted or plan to do so before Election Day, and Obama is winning them, 53 percent to 46 percent. But Romney is ahead among Election Day voters in Florida, 52 percent to 40 percent.

In Ohio, 35 percent say they have already voted or plan to do so, and Obama is leading them, 62 percent to 36 percent. Yet Romney is up among Election Day voters in the Buckeye State, 52 percent to 42 percent.

Strong approval for the president’s handling of Sandy The polls were conducted after Hurricane Sandy slammed into the East Coast, and seven in 10 likely voters in Florida and Ohio approve of the president’s job in handling the hurricane and its aftermath.

“The response was overwhelmingly positive, and that was occurring across party lines,” says Lee Miringoff, director of the Marist College Institute for Public Opinion.

On handling the economy Meanwhile, Romney has a slight advantage over Obama in Florida when it comes to which candidate would better handle the economy – 48 percent pick Romney and 46 percent back Obama.

We cannot afford 4 more years of Obama "Hope&Change" for the worse ;(


Well Tube, can we really afford 4 years of someone who will say anything to get elected. Jeep moving production to China; FEMA not necessary - let the states handle it, a man with a budget that doesn't add up which means higher taxes for middle class - http://2012.talkingpointsmemo.com/2012/08/tax-policy-center-yep-romneys-plan-raises-middle-class-taxes.php - and return to the policies of the previous administration that got us in this mess in the first place.

Contrary to popular belief less taxes on the wealthy and trickle down economics doesn't stimulate the economy but it does make a whole lot of rich guys richer... check out the conclusion of a report from the non-partisan Congressional Research Service: "Results of the analysis suggest that changes over the past 65 years in top marginal tax rate and top capital gains rate do not appear correlated with economic growth... However top tax rate reductions appear to be associated with increasing concentration of income at the top of the income distribution." http://graphics8.nytimes.com/news/business/0915taxesandeconomy.pdf
This blows the whole economic theory of the Republican party - less taxes = greater economic growth - just because you say it doesn't mean it's true.

And in the end who really deserves the blame - Obama or a Republican dominated House that doesn't really care about the average american, and one that puts self-interests ahead of the country, who made its sole mission in life to defeat Obama. What a bunch of selfish, arrogant boneheads.

How can anyone vote for Romney when they have no idea which Romney would be president?
