Poll shows 2012 presidential race close in Florida

BRENT KALLESTAD, Associated Press

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Many Americans have memories of the 2000 recount in Florida that settled the presidential election and wouldn’t want to go through that experience again.

However, a new poll by Quinnipiac University shows that President Barack Obama is looking at a tight re-election race next November whether the Republican nominee is Newt Gingrich or Mitt Romney. In either case, the candidates are in a statistical tie in Quinnipiac’s survey of registered voters taken between Nov. 28 and Dec. 5.

The poll shows Gingrich passing Romney among Republican voters in Florida. The former House speaker was favored by 35 percent of the 509 respondents compared to 22 percent who preferred Romney. No other Republican was in double digits. The survey has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.3 percentage points.

    And don’t forget that the photo id requirements for voting were required in 2000 were the result of the massive vote fraud that resulted in 1998 in Dade County. Beware the people screaming about vote/voter suppression as the purpose of the id requirements. People need to id for lots of things and there is no reason people should not prove with a photo id that they are the person claiming they are when voting. Protect the integrity of our elections – insist that only those who are allowed to vote vote.
