Poll: Romney Holds Slim Lead in Florida

By Newsmax Staff   |   Thursday, 24 Jan 2008 03:54 PM

Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney holds a small lead in Florida over his closest GOP rival, Arizona Sen. John McCain, according to Mason-Dixon's Jan. 22-23 survey of 400 likely Republican voters. The Tally has Romney beating McCain 30 percent to 26 percent, according to Fox News.

On the Democratic side, New York Sen. Hillary Clinton maintains a commanding lead over her closest rival, Illinois Sen. Barack Obama, among Florida voters.

Meanwhile, former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani comes in at 18 -- just ahead of the 15 percentage points scored by former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee.

Among Republican voters polled, 10 percent remained undecided.

A Jan. 21-23 survey of 400 likely Democratic voters showed Clinton pulling 47 percent of the vote to Obama's 25 percent. Former North Carolina Sen. John Edwards was well behind with 16 percent.

Of those Democratic voters surveyed, 10 percent remain undecided.

"Florida is a friendly territory for Clinton, as its older and heavily female Democratic electorate plays to her strength," said pollster Brad Coker. "Obama has significant support among African-American voters and runs better among younger voters."
