Quinnipiac: Jeb Bush, Hillary Clinton presidential favorites among Florida voters
WPTV.com ^ | November 21, 2013 | Ashley Killough

In the crucial swing state of Florida, former Gov. Jeb Bush appears to be the top contender among a crop of potential GOP presidential candidates, while former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is the overwhelming favorite for Democratic voters, according to a new poll.

The Quinnipiac University survey also indicates that if the two were to square off in an election held today, Clinton would barely edge out Bush, 47%-45%.

The 2-point margin falls well within the poll's sampling error.

Released Friday, the poll shows Bush would top a GOP primary race in the state at 22%, with Florida Sen. Marco Rubio slightly behind at 18%, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie at 14%, and Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas at 12%.

No other Republican candidate would get more than 9%, with 12% undecided, according to the poll.

Sure, Clinton would “barely edge out Bush,” thanks to all the illegals and welfare takers, who vote Democrat so they can get their free stuff. But why would the rest of us want to back another GOP loser?

For anything.

If this is true, it’s because of all the senior citizens here in Florida are all high on weed and boner pills.
Put down the boner pills grandpa... and the 50 shades of grey grandma..

Oh so we are back to only believing the polls we agree with. Worked real well in 2012 didn’t it. You guys kill me with you arrogance. You caused us to lose the election because you refused to believe the polls showing Obama winning which caused voters to feel comfortable. What idiots!!!!

I agree. Those are both very much Establishment favorites, and if they can get Jeb in as well, they’ll control the entire process as they did with McCain.

I have voted for a Bush four times at the top of the ticket (’88, ‘92, ‘00, ‘04). Not doing it again.

Well, he may not be a favorite with you, but he’s polling well with other Republicans. I don’t think he’ll get it, simply because of his name, unless perhaps he’s the VP on the ticket.

I like Rubio a lot, and he did come in second, but I don’t think he has the national recognition.

Christie, forget it.

No Jeb!--no more shrubs--clear the land.

No Hills--been over that one already and it is just a bump in the road. Get the bulldozer and roll over it!l

No Christies! Just another New England Dem lite. Starve him out of the Presidency.

I'm easy. I'll vote for him if he gets me into Bohemian Grove. I could use a booze and laugh filled vacation. How's the fishing?

I think we also might have the highest per capita incidence of dementia as well.

Now that Zero's got the green light to pack the DC Circuit with radical leftists, look for him to announce that he's running for a 3rd term. Does anyone really think that he'll let the pesky ol' 22nd Amendment get in his way of fundamentally transforming (read: destroying) this country?

Mark my words ...

He isn’t a favorite of mine , that’s for sure.

If the GOP cannot come up with a better candidate I will just write in someone.

If its Christy or Bush as the GOP candidate it will be the first election since 1964 that I will not be voting. I wasted votes on Ford, Bush, Dole, McCain and Romney. Never again...

Why don’t they both get in a boat, take it way out in the ocean, and sink it
