Published:

TAMPA, Florida (CNN) – Barack Obama may lead JohnMcCain by just 2 points in the latest CNN Florida poll of polls, butthe enthusiasm gap appears a bit wider.

John McCain’s first rally of the day, in Tampa outside Raymond JamesStadium, only drew about 1,100 people. Local reporters noting that atalmost the same spot just before the 2004 election, President Bush drewabout 15,000 people. Two weeks ago, Obama drew an estimated 8,000.

Republican Gov. Crist, who had previously agreed to do interviewswith CNN and various local affiliates, bolted right after the rallywith no explanation.
