Florida Poll: Romney 47, Failed President 41

Posted by on May 23, 2012 at 10:00 am

The hits just keep on coming for Dear Leader. He’s lost the War on Women, he can’t even crack 60% running against undecided or unknowns in Arkansas and Kentucky and now he’s fading fast in the key swing state of Florida.

A new poll shows likely GOP nominee Mitt Romney moving ahead in the crucial swing state of Florida to take a six-point lead over President Obama.

Romney holds a 47 to 41 percent lead among registered voters, according to the latest Quinnipiac University poll. Romney trailed Obama by 7 points in the same poll taken in March and held a 1 point lead early in May.

A majority of Florida voters surveyed said that Obama did not deserve a second term by 52 percent to 44 percent.

“Gov. Mitt Romney has slipped into the lead in Florida and that standing is confirmed by his much better numbers than the president when voters are asked whether they view the candidates favorably or unfavorably,” said Quinnipiac University Polling Institute Assistant Vice President Peter A. Brown.

The poll found voters viewed Romney favorably by a 44 to 35 percent margin, while only 45 percent viewed Obama positively to 50 negative.

But don’t worry folks, all is well according to delusional David Axelrod. Bet you didn’t know Obama’s got spending under control. In what almost appears to be a satirical Onion piece, he cites a guy approrpriately named Nutting who claims Obama’s out-of-control spending has never happened. Really.

Of all the falsehoods told about President Barack Obama, the biggest whopper is the one about his reckless spending spree.

As would-be president Mitt Romney tells it: “I will lead us out of this debt and spending inferno.”

Almost everyone believes that Obama has presided over a massive increase in federal spending, an “inferno” of spending that threatens our jobs, our businesses and our children’s future. Even Democrats seem to think it’s true.

But it didn’t happen. Although there was a big stimulus bill under Obama, federal spending is rising at the slowest pace since Dwight Eisenhower brought the Korean War to an end in the 1950s.

So all those stories about Obama racking up trillions in debt? Never happened. Oh, and gas prices? Meh, nothing to sweat, according to Nutting. Judging by his Twitter timeline, Nutting would have been live tweeting from Hitler’s bunker that everything was rosy back in April 1945.

    It’s amazing what a little vetting will do …. even if it’s only coming from less than a couple of dozen conservative blogs. The cats out of the bag on the “Liar In Chief” and folks don’t like what they see.

    “federal spending is rising at the slowest pace”. When our debt is over $16T. It’s like saying RMS Titanic is only slowly taking on water ahead of the pumps. You’re still hundreds of miles from shore, you don’t have nearly enough seats in the boats, and you’ll freeze before you drown. But it’s happening at a very slow pace. Huzzah.

    The sole possible positive note is, if this is what passes for good news from the dear leader’s wonderland, he’s truly screwed.

    His numbers fell in Florida? Why, whatever could Obama have done to cause a state with sizable populations of Jews and Cubans (as well as a coast along the Gulf) to slip away?

    In two words, the answer is Marco Rubio,
    perhaps the most popular politician in
    Florida’s history among all voters here..
    Whenever he speaks, people listen. Yowza.
    He will be the next face on Mt. Rushmore.
