FL-25: Garcia Surging in New Internal Poll

Hamilton Campaigns for Joe Garcia (10/8-9, likely voters, 7/7-13 in parens):

Joe Garcia (D): 42 (33)
Mario Diaz-Balart (R-inc): 45 (55)
Undecided: 13 (13)
(MoE: ±4.4%)

That's some big movement for Joe Garcia, and right in line with two other recent polls of this race. Carlos McDonald had Diaz-Balart up by 43-41, while Research 2000 pegged the race at 45-41 for Diaz-Balart. There's one big difference between this poll and R2K's poll -- and that's the Presidential preference of the district.

Research 2000 gave McCain a 53-38 margin here, indicating no coattails whatsoever to help Garcia. This internal poll, however, finds Obama with a 47-43 lead in the district -- up considerably from a 40-49 deficit in July. Bear in mind that this is an R+4.4 district, albeit one that has seen a dramatic Democratic voter registration surge.

In any case, we now have three recent polls showing Diaz-Balart lingering in the mid-40s, which is not a comfortable place for any incumbent to be.

The full polling memo is available below the fold.

off topic...but
Oh CRAP!  Mahoney gets caught with his pants down.  From Page-perv Foley to Faux-family Mahoney.  What the hell is wrong with these people?

It's very on topic if you look to your right in the "Recent Diaries" column

Oh well
At least we'll more than offset the loss with gains in other Florida house seats.  As I said in the other thread, the only concern I have is that Mahoney being on the ballot may slightly hurt Obama in the 16th district.
