Poll: Florida Voters Favor Clinton and McCain

January 14th, 2008 by flanews

The latest poll results are in. Quinnipiac University hails Senator Hillary Clinton and Senator John McCain as the presidential frontrunners among likely Florida voters. Clinton leads Senator Barack Obama 52 to 31 percent, while McCain holds slight lead over Republican contenders Rudy Giuliani, Mitt Romney and Mike Huckabee. Quinnipiacs assistant director of polling, Peter Brown, attributes the flip-flop in Republican frontrunners to the results in Iowa and New Hampshire.

When you finish fourth or fifth or sixth in Iowa or New Hampshire, its hard to convince your voters in Florida that youre still a serious candidate for President,” Brown said. “So that would explain the drop in Giuliani. In terms of McCain, winning solves a myriad of ills. When we last polled in December, people had given him up for dead. He resurrected himself in New Hampshire and now hes benefited from it.

The poll also found that 75 percent of Clinton voters are less likely to vote for another candidate, while 61 percent of Obama voters remain faithful. Only 42 percent of McCain voters are less likely to switch their votes, a smaller percentage than all three of his competitors.
