From a Q poll release:

A huge lead among women propels former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to a 59 – 33 percent lead over Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont among Florida likely Democratic primary voters, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today.

Women back Clinton 69 – 24 percent, while men go 47 percent for Sanders and 43 percent for Clinton, the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University Poll finds.

Likely Democratic primary voters 18 to 44 years old back Sanders 51 – 39 percent, while voters 45 to 64 years old back Clinton 64 – 28 percent and voters over 65 years old back her 73 – 21 percent.

Clinton leads among voters who describe themselves as “very liberal,” “somewhat liberal” or “moderate to conservative.”

Eight percent of Florida likely Democratic primary voters are undecided and 17 percent of those who name a candidate say they might change their mind before the March 15 primary.
