2012 Florida Political Maps

Nov 5th, 2012

Florida was the tipping point state in 2000 that gave George W. Bush the presidency over Al Gore and with 29 electoral votes it could play a similar role in 2012. Both Barack Obama and Mitt Romney have spent considerable time and resource in the state, with the Republicans having their convention in Tampa. For Mitt Romney, Florida is arguably his most important state, as without it, he can only get to 270 electoral votes by sweeping all the remaining swing states, including Wisconsin (see flow chart). Tampa is often the bellwether for the state, so keep an eye on early returns from Hillsborough County.
