Romney Ryan Gaining Ground in Florida

TAMPA –With the Republican National Convention set to begin Monday — assuming an Isaac-free Tampa — Romney/Ryan is gaining ground on Obama/Biden in swing-state Florida, according to the latest Quinnipiac/CBS News/New York Times poll. The poll, released Friday, shows Obama leading Romney 49 to 46. The same poll August 1 had Obama ahead 51-45.

Apparently, despite the wishful thinking and febrile pronouncements of Democrats and their media bag-carriers, Florida’s seniors have not found VP-choice Ryan scary at all. In fact, since Ryan has been added to the Republican ticket, Florida seniors have been moving toward it. Florida seniors, a higher percentage of whom vote than any demographic, now break 55-42 for Romney/Ryan, according to the poll. Which has a margin of error of +/- 2.8 percent. Independent voters in Florida also favor the Republican team 48-44.

With any kind of a bump out of next week’s convention, Romney/Ryan could leave town with a lead in the race for Florida’s 29 electoral votes.
