Two more polls confirm trend that Romney is now leading Obama in Florida

Two more polls out this morning confirm the results of yesterday’s shock poll conducted by Mason-Dixon that Mitt Romney is now leading Obama in Florida outside of the margin of error.

A poll conducted by American Research Group shows Romney at 49% and Obama at 46%, while Rasmussen’s daily track has Romney at 51% and Obama at 47%. While these new numbers are not good news for Obama, they do buttress Obama adviser David Plouffe’s argument that there is simply no way Obama’s “floor” is at 44%, which is what the Times/Herald/Mason-Dixon poll revealed.

“It’s impossible for us to be at 44 in Florida,” Plouffe said.
