Crowley: Obama will win Florida



Crowley Brian Crowley, the crack former Palm Beach Post political editor who covered more than two decades of Florida politics, predicts Obama will win Florida's 27 electoral votes. Says Crowley:

"I think the market declines hurt McCain with Floridians 50 and  older in every region of the state. They are the ones most hurt by losses in  their 401k and they vote in the biggest numbers.

"Democrats will vote in huge numbers, blacks will have record turnout,  young people will vote in somewhat higher numbers than the past - none of this  is good for McCain."
