Public Policy Polling’s final poll of the cycle in Florida … suggests that, along with NC, this may be the closest state in the country this year. Obama leads 50/49, but to be more specific 473 respondents chose Obama and 472 picked Romney.
PPP has conducted 4 polls in Florida over the last three weeks and found a 1 point race every time — Obama has been up slightly twice and Romney has been up slightly twice. There is a massive generational gap in the state with Romney leading 61/38 among seniors while Obama leads within every other age group. The Paul Ryan selection didn’t hurt Romney with Florida seniors as some had thought it might. Obama’s up 52/47 with women, 53/47 with Hispanics, and 91/9 with African Americans while Romney has a 53/47 edge with men and a 59/40 one with white voters.
