For all their disagreements, Marsh and DiBenigno agree on where the race will be decided in Florida. Be prepared for election night commentators to drone on about the I-4 Corridor, which crosses Central Florida from Daytona Beach to St. Petersburg. This is the most politically competitive part of the fourth largest state in the nation. The northern part of the state is McCain country, and it’s Obama in a walk down south (except for the Ft.

It will be critical for both candidates to get their voters to turn out election day. Both camps say they will contest the entire state. But don’t look for Obama to be giving many speeches in Pensacola, or for McCain to be polishing his act in Boca Raton. Here in Tampa, however, we’ll likely be tripping over both of them a lot between now and November 4.

Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
