POLL: Insider Advantage FL Survey


Two new Insider Advantage/Majority Opinion statewide surveys of voters in Florida (article, video; conducted on behalf of the Florida Chamber of Commerce, 9/6 through 9/10,) finds:

  • Among 500 Democratic likely voters, Sen. Hillary Clinton (at 36%) leads Sen. Barack Obama (18%), Sen. Joe Biden at 9%, and former Sen. John Edwards (9% 8%)* in a statewide primary. All other candidates receive less than 5% each, and 21% are undecided.
  • Among 500 Republican likely voters, former Sen. Fred Thompson leads former Mayor Rudy Giuliani leads (27% to 21%) in a statewide primary; Sen. John McCain trails at 9% and former Gov. Mitt Romney 8%. All other candidates receive less than 5% each and 25% are undecided.

According to the Insider Advantage release (link added):

Matt Towery . . . CEO of InsiderAdvantage, said: "Another survey released today shows Rudy Giuliani in the lead over Thompson. However, that survey includes Newt Gingrich in the survey question. Since Newt is currently not a candidate, and - unless Thompson crumbles, will not be a candidate - we felt a 'non-Newt' survey would provide a better overall view of the GOP field. Having Newt in a poll takes votes away from candidates and forces others to be undecided." Towery served as Gingrich's campaign chair until he resigned from the House in the late 1990s.

*Note: The original version of this post inadvertently omited Sen. Joe Biden and had Edwards at 9%. The email release we received from InsiderAdvantage reported the Edwards percentage as 9.4%, but the InsiderAdvantage website currently reports it at 8% (thanks to reader ME for the catch).

ME:

What do you mean Edwards has 9% and all the other candidates are below 5%. The article you link to has Biden at 9% and Edwards at 8%. Not sure what the confusion is.
