Mason-Dixon Miami-Dade County Poll
Obama 52%
Romney 43%

October 22-24; 625 LV; MoE +/4%

Obama won Miami-Dade County 58%-42% in 2008.

It's not clear whether Mason-Dixon conducted a statewide poll or other regional polls that may pop up on newspaper websites.

The only issue I have is that Obama lost ground among Latinos, even accounting for Cubans that's an ENORMOUS shift that really isn't being seen anywhere else.

Romney is winning Miami-Dade County Hispanics by 29 points.  He's winning Miami-Dade Cubans by a much wider margin, 76%-19%.

Obama leads I-4 Hispanics, 56%-37%.  IIRC, I-4 Hispanics tend to be less Cuban and more Puerto Rican.

Well Mason Dixon did catch Romney's big win amongst hispanics in the FL primary, unlike PPP which had Gingrich up amongst them.

Yes outside of M-D, PR's are much more prevalent.

Using 2008 as a baseline, Obama lost Cubans 52-46... so while I understand a drop-off, that 76-19 number is MASSIVE, and eye-brow raising shift. I'd be curious to know the size of the sample and the MoE...

Yes, which is why I'm taking this seriously, those numbers just make so little sense to me.

Well there are a lot of undecideds in the county poll.


What about the FL-22 poll that had Obama winning only 51-45 in a district he had 57% in back in 2008. Would that correspond with the overall shift in nearby Dade? Bigger? Smaller?

Very well, I don't think that well, but Bush obviously did incredibly well among Latinos overall... for a Republican.

Edit - Bush made up for a drop-off of Cuban support, which was very small, with that increased support for Latinos overall, and won the Latino vote 56-44.

So it's not impossible, but going on demographic shifts I really have issues with that element of the polling.

Considering it is Mason-Dixon, certainly much better than a Uni Poll and usually considered very balanced unlike Ras, this is good news. Moreover, it follows the other FL polls we've seen recently.

I acknowledge that this is a must win for Romney, that the President does not need the state at all in order to win, and the demos might off (then again, we can usually trust that Mason Dixon knows what it's doing). Still, it's better news than many Republicans have gotten from state polls recently.

Can I send you a cookie, sir?  Because you are the 1st Republican to post something relevant on this board in a long time.''

I still fell momentum to carry this state for Obama, but it will be within a point.

Tampa Bay "subregion" would include Tampa? I'd think you'd want to see at least a tie there for O, but at least it is close.

Srsly? Maybe some exit poll subsample claimed that, but I can assure you that, from precinct results, there is no possibility, none whatsoever, that Obama broke 40 among M-D Cubans. Probably right about 35.
Which probably tells you all you really need to know about this subsample as well. Which isn't saying that the poll is wrong overall, of course.

Except for all of the other Florida polls of course.

Whoever won I-4 corridor was going to win this, it's over.  Next and not NC that one is over too. 

“Romney has pretty much nailed down Florida,” said Brad Coker of Mason-Dixon Polling and Research, which conducted the poll for the Times and its media partners. “Unless something dramatically changes — an October surprise, a major gaffe — Romney’s going to win Florida.”

The Dade Hispanic vote will not be anything close to +30 for Romney unless only Cubans turn out (much lower % of the population than even 10 years ago). Again, there's a huge divide among younger/older Cubans and a landline only poll probably skews toward the later.

Romney is soaring with the Cuban vote. Those are Bush/Rubio numbers.

Whoa, you're back? Long time, no see!

And I basically agree, fwiw.

Yes indeed, just thought I'd pop in before the elections, I still read the forums every once in a long while I just don't post.

They had her up by one point.  Romney wins here by three minimum.
