Poll: Nearly Half Of Florida Voters Say Jeb And Rubio Should Quit 2016 Race


Florida voters agree, according to a poll released Tuesday: their former governor as well as one of their current U.S. senators should drop out of the presidential campaign.

Forty-seven percent of Florida voters said Jeb Bush should stop campaigning while 48 percent said Marco Rubio should join him, according to a poll from the Democratic-leaning Public Policy Polling.

Not only is Florida considered a swing state, but it’s also both politicians’ home base.

The numbers improve when Florida’s Republican voters were surveyed. Fifty-two percent of Florida GOP voters said Bush should continue his bid whereas 62 percent said Rubio should.

The poll was conducted among 814 voters, 377 of whom were Republican primary voters, from Sept. 11 to 13. Eighty percent of participants completed the survey by phone. The margin of error was 3.4 percent overall and 5.1 percent for Republicans.
