Mason-Dixon Poll: Mitt Romney & Mike Huckabee Lead Obama in Florida


Oh those pesky battle ground states …

A recent  Mason-Dixon Poll has both Republicans Mitt Romney and Mike Huckabee ahead of President Barack Obama in a hypothetical match-up in the battle ground state of Florida. In head to head match ups between potential GOP candidates Romney and Huckabee, and President Obama, former Massachusetts Governor Romney leads Obama 48% to 43%. Former Arkansas Governor Huckabee leads Obama 49% to 44%.

Former Governors Mitt Romney and Mike Huckabee would win Florida’s 29 electoral votes over President Barack Obama if the 2012 Presidential election were held today, according to the results of a new statewide Ron Sachs Communications/Mason-Dixon Poll released Monday.

The poll also pointed out the following data that 43% approve of President Obama’s performance as President while 51 percent disapprove. Which is in line with the recent trending of Obama’s approval numbers as see at Real Clear Politics. All polling since 4/8 have Barack Obama’s job approval in the red.

In 2008 Barack Obama beat John McCain in the battle ground state of Florida; however, the story was much different in the 2010 midterm election as Republican and Tea party candidate Marco Rubio overwhelmingly won the US Senate election in Florida. Also Republican Rick Scott won as governor and the GOP picked up 4 US House seats as well. Obama and the Democrats struggled mightily in swing states and with independents in 2010 … is this a sign of things to come for 2012? Without Florida, Obama has no chance for reelection.

      Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck or Pluto of Disney World could probably beat Obama right now if they took a poll. I think liberals are also becoming dissatisfied with how Obama is leading the country.

      I really hope when the time comes those aren’t the two choices.

      I was once a Democrat, but they turned to liberal and forced me out. I think that Romneycare is really going to hurt Mitt Romney; although, I like him. I adore Mike Huckabee and if he runs for election, he will have my vote. I don’t think my family and I can financially survive 4 more years of Obama. We can barely afford to eat now.

      Unfortunately I think both Romney and Hucklebee carry too much baggage. as #3 said, Romney carries Romney care, with me he also carries quitting the last time around leaving us with a Rhino. I like Hucklebee but for the party I believe he wears the Christian label to loudly (and I am a Christian). Had hopes for Trump but he’s making way too many mistakes right out of the gate. Yes, I wanna see the birth certificate, but let’s do it quietly so we don’t get branded kooks.

      Always admired Mitt Romney, think he is a keen Politician.

      However, this article is a reminder of how Mandatory State/Federal Health Insurance is a dismal failure.

      In Massachusetts, many are not pleased with outcome which essentially leads to LESS overall coverage, and ADDED expenses. In other words, all Residents of Mass, illegal aliens, unemployed and those of us who are even lucky enough to be covered by our Employers—pay for EVERYONE ELSE on our dime!

      If it has failed in our State, it certainly is going to FAIL NATIONWIDE which is why it MUST be repealed.

      B-A-R A-C-K O-B-A-M-A
      yep yep,lost my mind back in 08 ,any clue why.
      I see the demorats wanting to win [they could care less why]sooo badly that even w/all the daily calamities around this globe laid rightfully at the door of the demon they praise, they will still stick their heads in the sands while sentencing themselves and the possibility of us as well, to a sure and absolute demise .Otherwise why would anyone vote for a gay/bi mooslim w/a lost identity, for anything.
      He has pitted us against ourselves by pitting every socio-economic group against each other and by doing so has destroyed capitalism unless Romney pulls it off and after the election we will see a remarkable uptrend for Americans workforce since nobody will hire till Mitt is in ,too scared by obama and his agenda to destroy this country piece by piece. Since he has broken mans laws committing treason by leaking secrets that HAVE killed our soldiers ,someday soon karma WILL take its piece of flesh ,for me can NOT happen soon enough for me. He is the only human being[barely] I hold hatred for and that alone makes me hate him more and more every time I see him open his mouth I throw-up in mine,yuk!!
