Florida Moving Away from Obama
Florida has had a starring role in presidential elections since 2000. Bush won it that year by a few hundred votes. It was heavily contested again in 2004, but Bush carried it by 5 points, better than he did nationally. Four years ago, Obama snatched the state from McCain by a narrow 2.8 points, far below his margin nationally. It is again heavily contested this year. Recent polling, however, suggests the state to moving broadly towards Romney.
