Biden Leads Trump By Six Points In Voter Support In Florida

Miami – 51% of voters in Florida plan to vote for Democrat Joe Biden in the elections next November while 45% choose to re-elect President Donald Trump, according to a poll released Tuesday by the University of North Florida (UNF ).

“This large six-point gap between the candidates is likely attributed to the immediate aftermath of the debate,” said Michael Binder, director of the UNF Public Opinion Research Laboratory.

The survey maintains the upward trend of recent days for former Vice President Barack Obama (2009-2017), who visited Miami this Monday in search of improving his performance with Hispanics, especially Cubans, who are the most reluctant to vote for him in South Florida, a key state in the presidential elections.


Biden today leads the Republican by an average of 9.2 points in national opinion polls, according to the specialized portal Real Clear Politics, but in Florida that distance is only 2.4 points in favor of the former vice president.

The university specified that the survey, with a margin of error of plus or minus 1.8 points, was conducted with 3,142 voters from both parties after the first presidential debate, on September 29 and before the Trump administration disclosed that the president was infected with COVID-19 on October 1.

Two more polls were released in Florida on Tuesday, albeit with a much smaller number of respondents.

In one published by USA Today to 500 likely voters, the two candidates are tied in voting intention, although the margin of error is 4.4%, while in another by CNBC, made to 2,688 voters in six different states and that does not facilitate The specific data from the Florida poll says Biden is four points ahead of Trump.

In the UNF poll, when asked if they agreed that the election results on November 3 will be fair and reliable, 86% of Democrats agree that the results will be fair, compared to just the 58% of Republicans.

However, overall, 72% said they somewhat or strongly agreed, while 28% said they did not agree.

Binder said the nomination of Amy Coney Barrett, following the recent death of Judge Ruth Bader Ginsburg, combined with concerns about the integrity of the elections in general, highlights “the important political role that the courts play in this country.”

“The fact that the appointment of a Supreme Court judge was opened just weeks before the elections, and that it is not the main story, only shows how crazy 2020 is,” he added.

In that sense, 52% stated that they would like the candidate who wins the election to nominate the replacement for Ginsburg after being sworn in in January and 42% said that they would like the Senate to confirm Barrett before the elections.

On the other hand, immigration is more important to Hispanic respondents, with 25% indicating that they would only vote for a candidate who shared their views, compared to 23% of white respondents and only 9% of those surveyed. Black respondents.

Among voters overall, only 22% said they would vote for a candidate who shared their views on immigration, while 72% noted that it was just one of many factors to consider.
