A Public Policy Polling survey shows Mitt Romney leading President Barack Obama by 1 point in Florida, a 5-point gain for Romney in three weeks.
Romney led Obama 49-48 percent in a poll released Sunday, after trailing 50-46 percent in late September. The shift came mostly from independent voters shifting
preferences, said pollster Tom Jensen.
The poll included 791 likely Florida voters suveryed Oct. 12-14, for an error margin of 3.4 points. PPP is a North Carolina-based, Democratic-oriented polling firm that says its published polls are neutral and not paid for or authorized by any campaign or political organization.
