Poll Shows Lead Change

January 28th, 2008 by flanews

With the Florida primary on the horizon, recent poll results hail a new Republican frontrunner, while the leader is the same on the Democratic side. Quinnipiac University’s recent sample of likely Florida voters, shows Presidential hopefuls Senator John McCain and Mitt Romney in a virtual dead heat for first place among Republicans, 32 to 31 percent. Meanwhile Senator Hilary Clinton maintains a 20 point lead over Senator Barack Obama among Democrats, with 50 percent support.

“There’s no indication that despite Senator Obama’s lead and his win in South Carolina this weekend that it’s going to affect the race in terms of who’s going to win,” said Peter Brown with the Quinnipiac Polling Institute.

Brown also commented on how the Republican race to the White House is shaping up.

“You’ve got two tiers, we’ve got the 1st place race, and the 3rd place race, and the 1st place race is very, very close,”

Brown said don’t count on any comebacks. The poll also shows that supporters of McCain and Clinton are least likely to change their minds before tomorrow’s big showdown.
