Poll: Obama, Romney in Dead Heat in Florida

President Obama and likely opponent Mitt Romney are in a dead heat in a new Florida poll, with Obama edging Romney 46 percent to 45 percent.

The poll by Suffolk University and WSVN in Miami shows 7 percent of voters in the critical swing state are undecided. Picking Sen. Marco Rubio or former Gov. Jeb Bush as vice president could give Romney a slight edge over Obama.


A Suffolk poll of the state's likely voters in January put Romney 5 points ahead of Obama, 47 percent to 42 percent. His image did not fare well during the GOP primaries. Back in January he had a 44 percent favorable rating and 37 percent unfavorable. Now he's under water at 42 percent favorable, 45 percent unfavorable.

Suffolk surveyed 600 Florida registered voters May 6-8. The margin of error is +/- 4 percentage points.
