Skip to comments.New poll shows Clinton beating McCain in Florida, McCain-Obama race neck in neck [Quinnipiac]

Confirming the state is a bastion of Hillary Clinton support, a new Quinnipiac Poll out this morning shows Clinton beating Republican John McCain in Florida if she ends up with the Democratic presidential nomination.
A race between McCain and Barack Obama would be too close to call.
The survey showed Clinton with the support of 49 percent of Florida voters and McCain with 41 percent.
It showed McCain with 44 percent and Obama with 43 percent. Statistically thats a tie, well within the margin of error.
Among white working-class voters, Clinton ties McCain 45 - 45 percent in Florida. These same voters back McCain over Obama 51 - 34 percent in Florida.
Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute, said in a news release:
"If the super delegates are looking at electability, these results could be a shot in the arm for Senator Clinton. No one has won the White House since 1960 without carrying two of these three swing states, Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania. And she clearly is running much better against Senator McCain than is Senator Obama, at least for now.

“Neck in neck?” Do I want to know what that’s supposed to mean?
Good idea to note that it is Quinnipiac’s poll. Is there any poll in history when Quinnipiac has found the GOP ahead?
Typical clinton push poll
Polls brought to you by the Clinton campaign.
The only reason this poll exists is to show that Hillary is electable and Obambi isn’t. In fact none of the three candidates is electable. Its just that John McLame is less unelectable than Clinton or Obambi.
Less unelectable? Is that like, “unofficeacceptable . . ness?”
“Polls brought to you by the Clinton campaign.”
On Obama’s side, he’s meting out supposed “superdelegates” who convert to him day by day to create a sense of movement toward him.
I think that its time that Operation Chaos turned around.
This is a poll of registered voters, not likely voters. I would’nt bet your life savings on it. Or even one dollar.
Another poll of registered voters.
As I recall, polls at this time in 2000 showed Gov Bush with a more solid lead in FL too.
Quinnipiac has indeed showed Republicans ahead sometimes. Like in the last week of Oct 2004 when they showed Kerry *trailing* GWB in Pennsylvania. I guess they didn’t count all the illegal Demo votes from Philadelphia.
Does that include the dead vote?
two words: bull s**t
McCain will mop the floor with either one of them in the Land of God’s Waiting Room.
Clinton is pulling out the stops with the polls. I heard about one today where she is supposedly ahead of McCain in Ohio.
Never - in any significant poll.
