It Looks Like Its Over in Florida, Tampa Bay Times/Bay News 9 Poll Along I-4 Corridor Has Romney Ahead Obama 51% to 45% Among Likely Voters

 

It appears the fat lady may be singing in Florida …

According to a recent poll in the battleground state of Florida, the Tampa Bay Times/Bay News 9 poll of likely voters along the I-4 corridor finds Mitt Romney leading Barack Obama 51%  to 45%. According to RCP, Romney is up by 1.8% and all polls have him leading. Doug Ross remind us that Suffolk had stopped polling in Florida. It does seem that the Romney camp can count FLA in the win category.

It has been a fundamental rule of Florida politics for decades: Statewide campaigns are won and lost on the I-4 corridor.

Today that celebrated swing-voter swath stretching from Tampa Bay to Daytona Beach is poised to deliver Florida’s 29 electoral votes to Mitt Romney.

An exclusive Tampa Bay Times/Bay News 9 poll of likely voters along the Interstate 4 corridor finds Romney leading Obama 51 percent to 45 percent, with 4 percent undecided.

“Romney has pretty much nailed down Florida,” said Brad Coker of Mason-Dixon Polling and Research, which conducted the poll for the Times and its media partners. “Unless something dramatically changes — an October surprise, a major gaffe — Romney’s going to win Florida.”

Just the other day Romney drew massive crowds in Pensacola.
