Poll: Hillary beating Rudy in FL

5

December

For Hillary Clinton sweating it out in Iowa, Florida can't come soon enough. Here's the latest from Quinnipiac's Swing State Polling (11/26-12/3):

"Clinton tops Obama 53 – 17 percent among all Democrats and 56 – 13 percent among women. Former North Carolina Sen. John Edwards gets 7 percent.  Giuliani gets 30 percent of Republican votes, with 12 percent for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, 11 percent for Huckabee, 10 percent for former Tennessee Sen. Fred Thompson and 9 percent for Arizona Sen. John McCain."

"Clinton tops Giuliani 48 – 41 percent; Giuliani led 46 – 43 percent October 25....Clinton tops McCain 47 – 40 percent, Thompson 52 – 36 percent, Romney 50 – 36 percent and Huckabee 50 – 35 percent; Giuliani bests Obama 45 – 37 percent and Edwards 43 – 39 percent."

By a 52 – 41 percent margin, Florida voters have a favorable opinion of Clinton.  Favorability ratings for other contenders are:
• 48 – 34 percent for Giuliani;
• 44 – 28 percent for McCain;
• 43 – 31 percent for Obama;
• 42 – 35 percent for Edwards;
• Negative 25 – 28 percent for Thompson;
• 29 – 27 percent for Romney;
• 56 percent don’t know enough about Huckabee to form an opinion.
Clinton would do the best job handling immigration, 18 percent of Florida voters say, while 10 percent name Giuliani and 7 percent cite Obama.  No other candidate scores above 6 percent.
By a 66 – 24 percent margin, Florida voters favor enforcement over integration in immigration reform.   And 25 percent of Florida voters say they would vote against a presidential candidate who disagreed on integration policy, even if they agreed on everything else.
“Sen. Clinton is over 50 percent in the Democratic primary, an enviable place to be with less than two months before the voting,” Brown said.
