Romney takes a 0.04% lead in Florida. Each have about 3 million votes. the GARY JOHNSON VOTE of about 30K could lose the election for Romney

With more than 6 million votes cast, the gap betwen O & R in Florida is 23K votes… fewer than Gary Johnson has. mojo.ly/PBVLHZ

Johnson has some new fans in Florida who didn’t vote for him.
If Gary Johnson throws Obama to Florida, that would be awesome.

It would be kind of great if Gary Johnson cost Romney the election because of Florida.

Gary Johnson spoiling Florida would be so beyond epic.

In any case, a margin of difference of less than a half-percent triggers an automatic paper ballot recount. And what could go wrong with a recount in Florida?
