A new poll released by Quinnipiac University Polling on Wednesday morning shows Mitt Romney leading Barack Obama in Florida 47 – 41 percent, a near-shock poll that should ring alarm bells at Obama’s headquarters in Chicago.
Romney’s lead in the horse race compares to a 44 – 43 percent tie in a May 3 survey by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University and a 49 – 42 percent Obama lead March 28.

New Quinnipiac poll shows Romney leading Obama in FL 47% to 41%; with Rubio as VP, Romney up 49% to 41% | Saint Petersblog

I'm sure a liberal on here is going to come on during the next week, and post a poll with Obama leading Romney. Just saying.

There is no why in hell Oblama is winning Florida again in 2012. The economy, particularly real estate and unemployment, has been very bad there.

The swing states are places in the upper midwest like Wisconsin and Minnesota, plus Pennsylvania and Michigan. Obama won't win a single southern state in 2012, including FL NC and VA.

Rubio has stated numerous times he will NOT accept the VP nom if asked.
This is also cherry picking polls, you would never be fair and tell the whole story by showing the recent NBC/marist poll that has Obama +4 would you?

Obama has a very strong chance in florida. Like many states, Florida went teabagger in 10' and are having major buyer's remorse, mainly with their strong disapproval of governor Scott.

Minnesota is not even close to a swing state, Obama is currently +14 with the most recent poll. He's also +7 in Pennsylvania and +5 in Michigan.
Willard is looking very poorly in the key swing states like Ohio as well.

Actually, both liberals and conservative analysts on MSNBC's Morning Joe agreed WH Expects Florida is a lost cause.

Pennsylvania is not the swinging state many Rs like to think it is.

GOP Hopes Pennsylvania's Still Got That Swing : NPR

Winning voters in Philadelphia is a long shot for Romney. The city voted for President Obama by a 5-to-1 margin in 2008. . . . "Pennsylvania has gone Democrat five times in a row, so it's hard to claim swing status if you're, literally, not swinging," Borick says.

I agree. In state elections it's a swing state nationally, however, we're not safe Dem I'd say we lean Dem. Most of the counties that vote for the Democrats are found in and around Allegheny and Philadelphia counties (Philly is a city-county for those not familiar), plus Dauphin County which contains Harrisburg. All the rest vote GOP, minus a few scattered counties that have a coal mining and industrial tradition. We have strange politics here. We're the southernmost Northeastern state, but also the northernmost southern state, and easternmost Midwestern state, depending on the region you're in, hence our motto The Keystone State
