Mason-Dixon dejará de hacer encuestas en Florida porque cree que Romney la tiene ganada

The Washington Examiner:
Mason-Dixon Polling and Research recently conducted a joint poll for the Tampa Bay Times and Bay News 9, but Monday the firm announced it will no longer poll the presidential race in the Sunshine state; it is the second major pollster to pull out of Florida.

The group will no longer poll the presidential election in the state after finding Romney up by 6 points in the I-4 corridor.

"Romney has pretty much nailed down Florida," said Brad Coker of Mason-Dixon Polling and Research, which conducted the poll for the media partners. "Unless something dramatically changes — an October surprise, a major gaffe — Romney's going to win Florida.''

Elections are historically won or lost depending on a candidate’s performance in the I-4 corridor that stretches from Tampa Bay area to Daytona Beach on the east coast. Obama trailed Romney 51% to 45% with 4% undecided in the last poll.

The Oct. 22-24 survey focused only on voters in the I-4 corridor, however Obama is in trouble in the Tampa Bay area as well. The west side of Tampa Bay usually mirrors Florida's statewide results.
