Florida Republican primary voters, a big prize in the race for the GOP presidential nod, are still up in the air as to whom they will support in 2012, a new polls shows. More than 40 percent of the likely primary voters are undecided or support a candidate who is not running, the Sunshine State News
The poll found that 32 percent of those surveyed said they’re undecided in the race for the Republican presidential nomination. That number doubles the amount of support found in Florida for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, who get 16 percent and 15 of support among early primary voters, respectively.
The poll May 11-13 was taken before former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee announced Saturday that he will not run. So the 11 percent support he garnered in the poll could play a decisive role in the primary battle.
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey, who has said repeatedly that he’s not running for the Republican nomination in 2012, took 9 percent, while former Gov. Sarah Palin of Alaska, who has not announced her intentions, stands at 8 percent.
Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels and Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., both still pondering whether to jump into the race, took 3 percent each. Former Gov. Tim Pawlenty of Minnesota stood at 2 percent in the poll, while former Gov. Jon Huntsman took 1 percent.
Without Huckabee in the race, about 43 percent of likely Republican voters are still undecided on who, to support.
