Romney +4 in Florida — Rasmussen

The latest from Rasmussen Reports shows the daylight between the two candidates in Florida we’ve been talking about recently.  Mitt Romney is sporting a 4-point lead 51 – 47, slightly lower than yesterday’s Mason-Dixon 7-point lead but a nice lead nonetheless:

Mitt Romney has crossed the 50% mark for the first time to widen his lead to four points in Florida. The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Florida Voters finds Romney with 51% support to President Obama’s 47%. Two percent (2%) remain undecided. This is the widest gap between the candidates in surveys this year, but Florida remains a Toss-Up in the Rasmussen Reports Electoral College Projections. Prior to these findings, the candidates have been within two points of each other in Florida in every survey since April. Last week, it was Romney 49%, Obama 47%. Obama carried Florida over John McCain in 2008 by a 51% to 49% margin. Ninety-six percent (96%) of likely voters in the Sunshine State say they are certain to vote in this year’s election. Among these voters, it’s Romney 51%, Obama 47%. Ninety-two percent (92%) of likely Florida voters say they have already made up their minds which candidate they will vote for. Romney leads 52% to 48% among these voters.

    Doubtful. They are just opening up another office near Miami. Obama spoke to 9000 at a University event yesterday. I really have my doubts as to his coming back to Florida again. He’s in DC today, then in VA for debate prep 3 days, then NY for debate. Of the 18 campaign days left, does he go to Florida again is the real question.
