47-41 Romney/Obama

49-41 Romney/Rubio vs. Obama/Biden

...

From May 15 - 21, Quinnipiac University surveyed 1,722 registered voters with a margin of error of +/- 2.4 percentage points. Live interviewers call land lines and cell phones.

That Romney has a 50-40 advantage on handling the economy should be enough to bring Florida back to the blue column.

Compared to Bush 2004, Romney has made massive gains among Florida whites.

Too bad the growing number of hispanic voters can't stand him.

Well, a gender gap like that isn't special to the US.
We have the same in Canada and I suppose elsewhere.

Easy to explain, because the women are usually poorer than men and have more "social" jobs (nursing, etc...) which make them see the sad life of poor people, while more men are in leadership positions, where they see more benfits with right-wing positions.

I always thought it was because women vote based on emotion more than men do.

But neither group as a whole votes on emotion as much as you do.

It's still rather frustrating when you consider how many people with far better work histories than Jeff have to spend months or years unemployed before they finally get an offer.

Life is not fair.

Oh I don't doubt that, since many conservatives are reactionary.

In Florida? Mitt roughly breaks even on Hispanics. Florida is unique in that Mitt has a large room to take advantage of white flight from the Democratic party, not so with the bordering states.

Young Cubans and almost all other Hispanics are trending away from the GOP.

I always thought it was because the right-wing seeks to take away womens' rights. But that's another story.

I don't think FL's ever going to vote like this for a long time. It'll probably remain a swing state for a while. But yes, Rubio probably will help Mittens.

There is a lot of humor to be mined from this as the mind of LBJ in the body of an 18 month old baby girl is quite hilarious.

Alfred is the Atlasian equivalent of a malevolent deity.

Indeed. It probably deserves a vanity essay placed on the Community Forum actually.

This poll would actually show a tie if the current FL party registration numbers are used:

40D-36R-24I

produces a 45-45 tie, when Quinnipiac's internals are used.

Why did Florida only become a swing state in the 1990s? Even when a lot of the same demographics were in place before that?

The women vote is 5% more minority than the men vote.  That is the explanation.  Also, there's a sizable segment of single women with children who rely on taxpayer-funded welfare for their livelihood.

Example: Georgia's registered voters
Registered men: 29% black
Registered women: 34% black

Quinnipiac responds to the party line critique.

Those were NOT our numbers. Our weighted sample was 34% Republican, 31% Democrat and 29% Independent.   It also was 69% white, 14% Hispanic, and 12% black.

This poll is fantastic news for Romney.

It demonstrates Romney's cross party appeal. 

Now, if he is successful in extrapolating this cross party appeal to other swing states, then things will be looking very good for Mitt indeed.

Florida is politically a hybrid state. Northern Florida is truly part of the South in its politics, and the sorts of white Democrats who used to vote for Clinton and Carter (also George Wallace -- that is the clue) have largely gone R in their voting as elsewhere in the South. These people may still be nominal Democrats, but they vote heavily Republican -- or else consider President Obama the 'wrong sort of Democrat'. Southern Florida has large numbers of Hispanic voters, including the Cuban-Americans who used to be reliably R when their only concern was Fidel Castro and would vote for whoever had the most strident anti-Communist message, and other Hispanics who do not have that concern. Many of the northern retirees and those who followed along are nominal Republicans, but they come from the old Rockefeller wing of the Republican Party and can't stand  the 'Wallace Democrats'. Florida also has a large African-American population. 

Graft Alabama onto Michigan and you have a fair approximation of Florida.
