CNN Florida Insiders Survey: How to win the swing voters

(CNN) - As Florida Republican operatives look past Tuesday's primary, they are clear about what it will take to carry their state in November - winning swing voters.

While the 2012 GOP presidential race has sometimes seemed like a competition among the Republican White House hopefuls over who can appeal to the party's hard core, the fall campaign will be about winning the middle, according to a CNN survey of 47 Florida GOP insiders - state legislators, political consultants, fundraisers, veterans of previous primary campaigns, tea party advocates and a variety of other party activists.

    Just review the failed Obama polices, the president with the legacy of Failures.

    Winning the independents, is going to have to have more, than lies in attack ads.

    Tell us how could you invest (not spend) the $30 million to improve the lives and job prospects of the people of Florida. Tell us how we could potentially invest (not spend) $2- $3 Billion dollars to improve the lives and job prospects of the people of the US. How about we take that $2 to $3 billion, get businesses (especially those that benefited from TARP) to contibute $3 to $6 Billion and partner with microsoft, apple, cisco, codeacademy, etc and train our citizens to fill the jobs on careerbuilder, dice, usajobs, wantads, etc. But spending(not investing) $2 to $3 billion to get a job that pays $400K a year, that is pure lunancy. The only people benefiting from this is the campaign, marketing, sales, advertising (TV & Print) and pundit industry.
