Mitt Romney holds a slim edge over President Obama in Florida, according to a Rasmussen Reports poll out today. The telephone survey of likely voters in the Sunshine State finds Romney leads Obama 46 to 45 percent. Six percent prefer some other candidate, and another three percent are undecided.
The Rasmussen poll has Sen. Bill Nelson (D-FL) with a solid lead over all three Republicans running in the primary. In a head-to-head match-up with Rep. Connie Mack, Nelson boasts a 47 to 36 percent lead. Against former U.S. Sen. George LeMieux, he has a 44 to 30 percent lead. And in a match-up against businessman and retired Army officer Mike McCalsiter, the senator has a commanding 48 to 29 percent lead.
The poll of 500 likely voters in Florida was taken on April 25 and has a margin of error of +/- 4.5 percent.
