Remember How Paul Ryan Was Going To Lose Florida For Romney?

Remember how all the usual liberal suspects were crowing that, by choosing Paul Ryan as his running mate, Mitt Romney had killed his chances at ever carrying the senior-rich state of Florida?

Yeah, not so much. A new poll shows Romney leading Florida by 14 POINTS.

Now, I’m aware there’s probably a problem with this poll somehow. However, it was done by a reputable, notable polling firm, and, even if they’re showing a lead way, way off double what it really is, I’ll take Florida by 7% every day from now until November.

Foster McCollum White & Associates, Baydoun Consulting and Douglas Fulmer & Associates, of Dearborn, Mich., questioned 1,503 likely Florida voters Friday and found Romney, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, leading Obama 54%-40%. The poll has a margin of error of +/-2.53%.

Although recent Florida polls have been trending slightly in Romney’s direction (+2% and +1% in the most recent surveys), the jaw-dropping 14-point gap is a shocker.
