Romney Winning in Florida

Barack Obama may be holding a narrow lead over Mitt Romney nationally, but the president’s Republican opponent has managed to inch 6 points ahead of Obama in Florida. A new Quinnipiac University poll sees Romney with 47 percent, Obama with 41. Though Florida Sen. Marco Rubio is in the running for Mitt’s VP, the poll doesn't predict that adding him to the ticket would necessarily guarantee a win for the Republican in the key state.
