Here’s the latest news out of Florida courtesy of Quinnipiac University’s latest poll:
Florida voters don’t have a clear favorite in the upcoming presidential election. If the election for president were being held today, former Vice President Joe Biden would get 46 percent of the vote, while Trump would get 42 percent. The candidates are holding their bases just about equally well, as Biden wins among Democrats 91 – 4 percent and Trump wins among Republicans 89 – 7 percent. The race is close among the keys wing group, independents, with Biden getting 44 percent of the vote and Trump receiving 37 percent.
“Even in the midst of an unprecedented health crisis, Florida delivers a familiar deja vu in the head to head presidential race. It’s Biden, but it’s close as independents play a huge potential role. Sound familiar?”added Malloy.
Voters hold a mixed view of Biden and a negative view of Trump, but their favorability ratings are moving in different directions. Trump is viewed favorably by 43 percent of voters, while 50 percent view him unfavorably – a new high favorability for the president in Florida. This compares to March 2019, when Trump had a negative 40 – 52 percent favorability rating. Biden is viewed favorably by 43 percent of voters, while 40percent view him unfavorably. However, this is down from a positive 49 – 35 percent favorability rating in March 2019.
While Florida voters think Trump would do a better job handling the economy than Biden, 50 – 44percent, they think Biden would do a better job handling health care than Trump 54 – 39 percent, and think Biden would do a better job handling a crisis than Trump 50 – 43 percent.
It’s clear Florida is back in swing state territory and we need to win it to help Biden get to 270 electoral votes. Let’s help him win the Sunshine State big time. Click here to donate and get involved with Biden’s campaign.
