Poll: Romney Up 5 in Florida

by Katrina Trinko

From Jacksonville.com:


Mitt Romney’s lead with independent voters has propelled him to a 5-point lead in Florida two days before Election Day, according to a Times-Union/InsiderAdvantage poll released Sunday night.

Likely/registered voters favored Romney 52 percent to 47 percent for Barack Obama, but Romney holds a 25-point lead with independent voters.

Florida is a crucial swing state — and one that has looked more favorable for Mitt Romney than many others.
