Public Policy Polling's final poll of the cycle in Florida shows Obama leading 50/49. More specifically, 473 respondents chose Obama and 472 picked Romney.
According to PPP: Of 4 polls in Florida over the last three weeks, there was a 1 point race every time.
"Obama has been up slightly twice and Romney has been up slightly twice. There is a massive generational gap in the state with Romney leading 61/38 among seniors while Obama leads within every other age group.
"The Paul Ryan selection didn't hurt Romney with Florida seniors as some had thought it might. Obama's up 52/47 with women, 53/47 with Hispanics, and 91/9 with African Americans while Romney has a 53/47 edge with men and a 59/40 one with white voters."

MARCO RUBIO, SUPER SURROGATE via James Hohmann of POLITICO
"Republicans don't have a Bill Clinton, but they do have Florida's junior senator.
"Marco Rubio is scheduled to do a primetime cable tour tonight, including CNN's Erin Burnett, FOX 's Sean Hannity, and CNBC's Larry Kudlow.
"At Romney's big rally in West Chester Friday night, nearly 100 top GOP surrogates took the stage before fanning out to swing states in the final days. Many were introduced by loudspeaker. No one from outside Ohio received louder cheers. It was Rubio's 70th campaign event for the Romney campaign, and it came at the end of a 12-hour campaign swing through Ohio with Josh Mandel.
"Rubio has visited every key swing state, including a 1,000-person rally last Thursday in Philadelphia. He's also campaigned with or raised money for Republican Senate candidates in Massachusetts, Indiana, Ohio, Nebraska, Nevada, Florida and Virginia. Notably, much of this activity happened after he was passed over for VP."
