Joe Biden still leads the Democratic Party field in the Florida Presidential Primary, but his lead has narrowed over the past 10 months. Late entry, Mike Bloomberg is within striking distance of edging out Bernie Sanders for second place.
The Inweekly/Political Matrix poll of 843 likely Florida Democrat voters found Biden with 32.6% of the vote, Sanders with 23.6% and Bloomberg with 16.3%. About 14% were undecided with the Florida primary less than three weeks away.
Biden’s share of likely Democratic voters has shrunk by 9.8 points since the April 16, 2019 poll. Saunders’ percentage has steadily grown–jumping 10.9 points. Bloomberg has swept in and garnered 16.3 percentage points, appearing to pick up many of the undecided voters.
Pete Buttigieg, Amy Klobucher and Elizabeth Warren don’t appear to be serious contenders for Florida Democrats–only pulling a combined total of 13.6% in the Feb. 27 poll, which is only up 4.3 points since last April.
