CNN Poll: Romney, Obama Neck-And-Neck In Florida After Second Debate

With the first two debates in the books, President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney are essentially tied in Florida, according to a poll from CNN and ORC International on Friday.

The poll, conducted over the two days following Tuesday’s town hall debate, shows Romney barely leading Obama among likely Sunshine State voters 49 percent to 48 percent — well within the survey’s margin of error.  

Romney holds a roughly 3-point edge over Obama in Florida, according to the PollTracker Average.
