Two more polls confirm trend that Romney is now leading Obama in Florida

By on October 12, 2012

Two more polls out this morning confirm the results of yesterday’s shock poll conducted by Mason-Dixon that Mitt Romney is now leading Obama in Florida outside of the margin of error.

A poll conducted by American Research Group shows Romney at 49% and Obama at 46%, while Rasmussen’s daily track has Romney at 51% and Obama at 47%. While these new numbers are not good news for Obama, they do buttress Obama adviser David Plouffe’s argument that there is simply no way Obama’s “floor” is at 44%, which is what the Times/Herald/Mason-Dixon poll revealed.

“It’s impossible for us to be at 44 in Florida,” Plouffe said.
