PPP Florida:

A new Public Policy poll has John McCain extending his lead over Barack Obama to a 50-45 margin in Florida, up from a three-point McCain edge last month. The pollsters say McCain’s lead is mostly due to white voters shifting from “undecided” to “pro-McCain,” with McCain now garnering 61 percent of the white vote to 34 percent for Obama. The Democrat is keeping it within range by dominating with black voters (88-10) and winning with Hispanics (49-42), a margin he’ll likely need to improve if he plans to carry the state.

And like voters everywhere else, Floridians are wild about Sarah Palin, with 45% saying they are now more likely to vote for McCain because of his Veep choice, while just 36% say the same of Obama for his pick of Joe Biden.
