Presumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney leads President Barack Obama 47 to 41 percent among registered voters in the key swing state of Florida, according to a new poll from Quinnipiac University.

Romney has enjoyed quite a turnaround from the 49 percent to 42 percent deficit he faced two months ago. The combatants were virtually tied three weeks ago, with Romney leading 44 to 43 percent. The poll has a 2.4 percentage point margin of error.

The former Massachusetts governor leads 44 to 36 percent among independents, who will almost certainly determine which candidate wins the Sunshine state. The two candidates are virtually tied among women, another important demographic, with Obama leading 45 percent to 44 percent.

Obama also has a statistically insignificant 42 to 40 percent lead among Hispanics. The Latino vote is very important in a state where Hispanics make up 23 percent of the population.

Adding Florida Sen. Marco Rubio to Romney’s ticket expands his lead over Obama by two percentage points - 49 percent to 41 percent.

Only 44 percent of voters believe the president deserves another term in office, compared to 52 percent who don’t. Among independents, those numbers worsen for Obama to 41 percent who believe he deserves another term and 54 percent who don’t.

Interestingly enough, while Obama and Romney split Hispanic support about evenly, 49 percent of this demographic believe Obama deserves another term, while 43 percent don’t.
