    Here's what the Orlando paper said (10/7):

    The key to Florida remains the Tampa Bay region, where Obama currently holds a 48%-44% advantage.

    The other regions of the state fall into their generally predictable patterns, with Obama holding a wide 61%-33% lead in Southeast Florida and McCain running ahead in North Florida (58%-37%), Central Florida (51%-43%) and Southwest Florida (55%-40%).

    The Tampa Bay area is a vital swing area in a vital swing state.  It's also where the Obama campaign has placed its state HQ, whereas McCain campaign's state HQ is in Tallahassee, in the panhandle. (Another sign of poor judgment). GOTV will be a real factor in this area.  

    And speaking of which, here's a recent article about the status of the McCain campaign in Florida.  

    With some grass roots organizers complaining about coordination problems with the campaign, Republican Party chairman Jim Greer gathered top officials at the state headquarters in Tallahassee on Tuesday afternoon. He swore the group to secrecy.

    And no complacency--an increasing number of people are showing up for volunteer meetings as election day gets closer.

    We're in a culture that increasingly holds that science is just another belief. - Alan Alda
