Bryan:

Not particularly surprising, considering Florida's trending towards Republican lately, and given Florida's lack of direct exposure to either of the Democrats.

Henry:

This will all change when Florida sees Obama. See, they don't know him yet down there. Who has come into contact with Obama and not fallen for him? It's in the bag! 48 state sweep in November. Count on it

Michael M:

Haha Henry, while I do am an Obama supporter, I think you have become slightly unrealistic in your beliefs. I have no doubt that this will be a close race in the general election, the country is still very much divided and a Black man who bases his entire election on change is very scary and unwanted by many Americans unforunately. I think that Florida may come around to Obama, but places like Kentucky, Mississippi, and most of the heartland of the US are not going to vote in favor of a progressive democrat. I have no doubt that he can take all the states that Hillary has one in the general election.

Phil:

Florida's Republican turn since 2000 is clear, and this is not a surprise. At this point, FL has to be counted among the red states.

Prasad:

Honestly , Obama has less chance of winning against Mccain.. I am a democrat and always voted for democrats even in local election , but this time it will be McCain.. I can not vote for some who needs on job training as I have seen that with Bush, how it turns out... Its completely personal to me...

Henry - that's a very bold statement. Obama will win every red state - but two? Interesting. Anyway, although my position is that November polling is highly suspect, Florida will likely go McCain. Just my sense as a Florida native.

Henry B. (in Cali):

Just wanted to comment that the "Henry" here is another Henry. I've posted under "Henry" quite a bit in the past and obviously these silly posts as well as the one in another recent previous poll that was missing punctuation and such were not mine.

While I am a somewhat reluctant Obama supporter myself, it's hard to see him winning 48 states in Nov. However, all the evidence has been showing that he will do significantly better than Clinton VS McCain, and this is probably part of the reason he's doing so well.

Clinton will likely concede on March 5.

Peace
Henry

To Prasad: How does McCain have any more knowledge about being president than Obama? From what I understand there is no job that trains you to lead our nation. The closest thing would be serving as a governor and I will agree with you that as a former governor Bush hasnt shown much worth. If anything, Obama is going to be much more willing to learn the skills needed to adapt and migrate into such a position. McCain is old and set in his ways, hes only really seen two things in his life, War and its effects and sitting behind his Senate seat. I believe we are all entitled to vote for who we feel is right, but to say that you need to vote for McCain based on experience and job readiness is asinine.

More to the point, to vote someone who sings 'bomb bomb Iran', after such a successfull adventure in Iraq is asinine...but then USA needs more war to get that recession going properly.

I'm with Prasad on that. I'm also not all that fond of Obama's empty messages of hope top that with the fact that he was ok with screwing 1.8 million Democratic Floridians out of their vote and ya he lost my vote long ago. I'm a Democrat but if he wins the nomination I'm pretty sure I'm voting Republican. I can't vote for someone who tells me my vote doesn't count and that, as prasad said, needs "on the job training". No thanks, been there done that for the past 8 years.
