Poll: Clinton Leads By Nearly Two-To-One Margin In Florida

March 9, 2016 11:19 a.m.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has an advantage in Florida of nearly double the anticipated support for Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), according to a Quinnipiac poll released Wednesday.

The poll showed support for Clinton at 62 percent, while Sanders stood at 32 percent. This is a slightly wider margin than that indicated by the previous Quinnipiac poll in Florida, which showed Clinton at 59 percent and Sanders at 33 percent.

These results are consistent with most Florida polling, which shows Clinton leading by overwhelming margins. TPM’s PollTracker Average shows Clinton at 61.7 percent and Sanders at 32 percent.

The poll was carried out from March 2-7. Pollsters surveyed 511 people likely to vote in the Democratic primary, with a margin of error of 4.3 percentage points.
