Florida: Obama Ahead by One (Rasmussen)
Source: Rasmussen Reports

Barack Obama has caught up to John McCain in Florida. The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey in the state finds Obama with a statistically insignificant one-point advantage over his rival, 46% to 45%. When leaners are included, the Democrat leads 49% to 47%.

Over the past six months, McCain has maintained leads ranging from seven to sixteen percentage points. Last month, McCain led 48% to 41% in the Sunshine State.

A big push for Obama this month in Florida comes from unaffiliated voters. Last month, he had just a three-point lead in this demographic. This month, he leads by twenty-three.

Obama leads 50% to 43% among women in Florida, while McCain leads 47% to 41% among men. The Democrat has double-digit leads among voters under 40 years of age, while McCain has a big lead among senior citizens.

7. I didn't expect Obama to be competitive in FL
I'm still not sure he is but this sounds hopeful. Obama got spanked by Clinton (50%-33%)and I figured that the senior citizens would vote for the old guy.

If we can win Florida the election is ours.

9. Postive responses to my Obama Mama shirt
I wear it all over. Yet to see a single frown. I have also yet to see one single McCain sticker or sign. This is a very red Republican area I live in. It really surprises me all the Obama stickers and signs that I see.
