Barack Obama 46
John McCain 44
It's shaping up to be another tight contest in Florida, but based on much greater Hispanic support than John Kerry saw in 2004, Barack Obama has the early lead.
George W. Bush won Hispanic voters in the state 56-44 last time, but this survey shows Obama leading among them 51-37.
Obama is also starting to pull the party together in the state. PPP's last Florida poll, taken in March, showed Obama trailing 50-39 while receiving the votes of just 60% of self identified Democrats. He now leads 74-16 with folks in his own party, a level of support relatively similar to John McCain's 77-18 edge with Republicans. Obama is currently taking independent voters in the state, 45-33.
Obama is winning every age group except voters over 65, where McCain's considerable 52-34 advantage allows him to keep the race competitive overall.
