New Florida poll numbers from Rasmussen Reports

I hate the Google search engine on DU, it gives no relevance whatsoever when you try to search recent posts, however if this has been posted, I am sorry.

I don't trust Rasmussen, however even taking into account the margin of error, it is looking better and better for President Obama.

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.

This month, Obama is viewed favorably by 51% of Florida voters, up from 44% last month. He is viewed unfavorably by 47%, down from 53% last month. McCains numbers are 60% favorable, up from 57% last month, and 39% unfavorable, up from 38% last month.

Nearly half of voters in Florida (49%) say economic issues are the most important in the upcoming election. Of those voters, 63% choose Obama while just 27% choose McCain. In a very distant second, 19% of voters choose National Security issues as the most important in the Presidential election. Among those voters, McCain has a 79% to 18% advantage.


McCain has a big lead among senior citizens

Youth will win the day.

1. Subtitled: Rasmussen makes a fool of himself
Yesterday we had a release of McCain up 10 in Ohio. Now simultaneous we have Obama leading in Florida.

Marvelous common sense. :rofl:

Everyone knows Ohio tilts 10-12 points more red than Florida. Disregard they've been within 3.5 points of each other in the partisan index each of the last 3 cycles.

The wonderful world of state polls.
