Fla Poll: Obama 50%, Romney 46%



A new Time/CNN/ORC International poll of likely voters in Florida shows President Obama leading Mitt Romney by four points among likely voters, 50% to 46%.

"Obama's edge in Florida is bolstered by women voters, among whom he's beating Romney, 54%-42%, and by nonwhite voters, with whom he boasts a 70%-29% advantage. There are signs the incumbent is stitching together the same demographic coalitions that helped him capture Florida's 29 electoral votes four years ago."

Romney leads among voters 65+ 51 percent to 45 percent, and Obama leads among women 54 percent to 42 percent and among independents 46 percent to 45 percent. The margin of error is plus or minus 3.5 percent.
