Florida Remains Close

Most of the focus on been on Ohio, but Florida remains equally important to Mitt Romney path to 270. Without taking Florida there is almost no plausible way for Romney to win the White House, but recent polling of the state remains incredibly close. PPP has Obama up by one while CNN has Romney with a single point lead.

PPP (10/26-28)
Barack Obama 49%
Mitt Romney 48%
Undecided 3%

CNN (10/25-28)
Mitt Romney 50%
Barack Obama 49%
Neither 1%

According to PPP, there has been small improvement for Obama in Florida. Their previous two polls had Romney up by one in the state.

CNN asked the presidential question in two ways. They asked it once with just the two majority party candidate named and asked it again including all minor party candidates. When Gary Johnson (Libertarian) and Jill Stein (Green) were included the race became completely tied with Obama and Romney both at 48 percent.
