In Florida, Clinton Leads All Republicans in New PPP Poll

Florida remains Clinton Country in the new PPP poll of the state.
Hillary Clinton has leads of 2-8 points over all of the potential GOP contenders in the state. Rubio comes the closest at just a 48/46 deficit and Bush is down by a similar margin at 47/44. Rand Paul trails by 4 at 46/42, Mike Huckabee's down 5 at 49/44, Chris Christie and Ted Cruz each trail by 7 at 48/41 and 49/42 respectively, and Ben Carson (49/41), Rick Perry (50/42), and Scott Walker (49/41) all lag Clinton by 8 points.
The Democratic numbers for Clinton are also as strong as ever.
On the Democratic side Hillary Clinton remains dominant with 58% to 14% for Joe Biden, 10% for Elizabeth Warren, 3% for Bernie Sanders, 2% for Martin O'Malley, and 1% for Jim Webb. Clinton is polling over 50% with liberals, moderates, men, women, whites, African Americans, and voters within every age group.
Additionally, this poll is full of more awful news for Jeb. Not only is he down a few points to Hillary (and if he can't secure his home state, why is he even in the race?) but he's not even running away with the lead on the Republican side. A full 3/4th of primary voters support someone else, and he's only 8% ahead of Walker. It's pretty clear that Florida knows Jeb Bush...and they're just not that into him.

With encouraging numbers like these, it seems likely that both Clintons are going to hit Florida hard right away to lock up those precious 29 electoral votes while the Republicans are busy arguing themselves to death through next spring.

...and it's game over before they even know what hit them.

  1. I read that ONE MILLION previously uninsured people in Florida got health insurance thru Obamacare. I wonder how those people plan to vote?
