Although PPP is a good poll this Florida poll does not fit the demographics of the state. Although the Cuban population is large at 813,120 only 5% of them are registered to vote compared to the Mexican population of 363,925 and with a 59% registration. The Cubans in one poll are supporting Republicans 48/40 but Mexicans are for Obama at 70%. Also Puerto Ricans at 482,027 have a registration of 14% and are also in support of Obama and the democratic party by more then 60%.
It's not possible for Romney to be leading with Hispanics in Florida. Your poll must be using a Cuban little Havana list. I also think that there must have been a misunderstanding in your poll as to who won 2 out of the three debates. Obama won the foreign policy debate by a large margin.


Lo que importa es que han puesto a 64% solo de blancos cuando en Florida es de 67% de los votantes registrados. Y Romney le saca 7 puntos entre los independientes, y hay 5 puntos más de demócratas cuando en el 2008 solo fueron 3 puntos más . Está claro, Romney gana en Florida.

Rosemary, I think the PPP document has the Hispanic vote backwards. It probably should be 54-46 for Obama, not 54-46 for Romney. Otherwise, if it were 54-46 for Romney, Romney would be leading in the poll.


PPP is a joke.

You have Romney leading with men, Whites, Hispanics, Independents, and senior citizens...and winning on the issues of the economy and foreign policy...but losing the state by a point. This is absurd.

PPP POLLS BY YEAR: 2006-2016

We came to PPP after a public poll in the San Jose Mayoral race showed our opponent ahead by 8 points. They found our candidate (Sam Liccardo) ahead by 3 points and that allowed us to be able to push back with the press against the perception that our opponent was now a strong favorite in the race. Sam ended up winning by 2 points and is now the next Mayor of San Jose. PPP worked very fast and had a very accurate read on the electorate when we needed them

PPP is best known for putting out highly accurate polling on key political races across the country, but we also do affordable private research for candidates and organizations.  Why pay tens of thousands of dollars for a survey when one of the most reliable companies in the nation can do it for less?"
