Rasmussen: McCain Takes Florida

Original Link:

By TexasDarlin

This is pretty sad since it’s a sure bet Hillary could actually win Florida, and win the White House. (But I digress, as that seems to be a throw-away goal for the Dems this year.)

Rasmussen published a new survey Thursday. And let me go on record right now as predicting that Senator Barack ‘flip-flop-didn’t-mean-what-i-tried-to-say’ Obama will soon do a backflip and endorse off-shore drilling. From Rasmussen:

The Florida survey also found that McCain currently leads Obama in the state by a 47% to 39% margin. Six percent (6%) said they would vote for some other candidate while 8% are undecided.

However, after voters were told that McCain favored offshore drilling and Obama opposed it, McCain’s lead increased to eleven points, 49% to 38%. While a three-point net gain is not stunning, it is significant that the issue didn’t push voters towards Obama. All of McCain’s gains on the offshore drilling issue came from male voters.

Whoa, so let me get this straight. Rasmussen, which is known for its pro-Obama polling tendency, says that McCain leads in Florida by 8 points, even before the off-shore drilling option is mentioned?? Oh boy. WAKE UP SuperD’s. We have another member of the LLC (Liberal Losers Club) in the house!
