A Rasmussen Reports poll shows Mitt Romney leading Barack Obama 46-45 percent in Florida.
Statistically, the 1-point lead is a tie—the poll, done with automated dial or “robopoll” methodology, tapped 500 likely voters July 9, for a 4.5-point error margin.
Most other recent polls have shown Obama with a slight leads, usually also less than the error margins of the polls.
