Quinnipiac: Obama Leads By 2 In Florida

By  | 

Obama – 46%
McCain – 44%

This is a statistically insignificant lead, so they’re basically tied. Last month, Obama lead by 4, 47% to 43%.

The shift appears to be happening among the independent crowd. Now they’re backing McCain by 5 points. Last month, Obama led among independents by 10. That’s quite a shift, and makes me wonder about Quinnipiac’s numbers a bit, but they’re usually a steady bunch so we’ll just have to wait until we see some other state polls to determine if this is the trend.

More details…

  • Florida women likely voters back Obama 47% to 42%.
