Obama-Romney Race Too Close to Call in Florida: Poll

A poll puts President Barack Obama at 48 percent and Gov. Mitt Romney at 47 percent. Here's a look at political news around the state.

It's clear why the presidential candidates and their families are such frequent visitors to the Sunshine State: The race between President Barack Obama and Gov. Mitt Romney is a dead heat.

A new Quinnipiac University poll shows Florida too close to call. Obama leads 48 percent to Romney at 47 percent, within a 3 percent margin of error. The poll was taken between Oct. 23-28.

In late September, Obama had a nine-point lead in a previous Q-poll.

 Are You Among the 2.7 Million Floridians Who Already Voted?

 Marc Caputo of the Miami Herald reports that 2.7 million ballots have been cast out of 12 million registered voters. An estimated 75 percent of registered voters are expected to take part in the 2012, meaning that 30 percent of voters have cast their ballots early.

Are Dems 'Cleaning the Clocks' of GOP'ers?

Palm Beach County Republicans are concerned about Democrats staking out an advantage in early voting, according to a memo obtained by FLDemocracy/WPTV. The memo, from an adviser to a local GOP campaign, said that the Democratic turnout effort is "cleaning our clock."

"The early and absentee turnout is starting to look more troubling," the GOP operative said in the memo sent Tuesday.  "Even if Romney wins the state (likely based on polls), the turnout deficit in PBC will affect our local races."

Oh brother.......I'm so sick of hope and change and now moving forward.........I'll just about bet that Osama Obama has directed his Czars (what a joke) to destroy the paperwork that would prove how much he and his thugs have lied to the American people. I cant get to the polls fast enough to cast my vote and you can bet it WONT be for Osama Obama.

Romney can’t be trusted, as Republican leaders, media and experts agree! Gen. Colin Powell, a Republican and Sec. of State under President George W. Bush: “I’m not quite sure which governor Romney we would be getting with respect to foreign policy.” http://thinkprogress.org/security/2012/10/25/1086721/powell-romney-foreign-policy/?mobile=nc Politifact: 42 percent of Romney’s comments in recent months have been false, much higher than Obama’s comments. http://www.politifact.com/personalities/mitt-romney/ Salt Lake City Tribune, largest daily paper in Republican and Mormon-led Utah: “Romney (is) willing to say anything to get elected.” http://www.sltrib.com/sltrib/opinion/55019844-82/romney-obama-state-president.html.csp Rick Santorum, former Republican Senator: “This is someone (Romney) who doesn’t have a core. He has been on both sides of almost every single issue in the past 10 years. “ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=av3q7-a-ayc&feature=player_embedded#! FactCheck.org: “Romney distorts facts on Jeep, auto bailout.” http://factcheck.org/2012/10/romney-distorts-facts-on-jeep-auto-bailout/ Brit Humes of Fox News: “Republicans do not trust Romney” http://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2011/10/30/brit_hume_republicans_do_not_trust_romney.html

The Republican party was so offensive to women, non-white people, and non-christians, it's unbelievable to me that people from those same groups voted for them although I know they did. It's a fallacy to think if they had put forth Marco Rubio, they would have garnered the Hispanic vote. That's equally offensive assuming Hispanics are stupid and wouldn't see through his thin veneer. Sandy's comments are exactly the kind of thing I'm talking about. People like that are becoming less significant as the white vote goes down and others go up. We'll tolerate you but we're not going to let you run anything.
