Donald Trump and Joe Biden remain in a closely contested battle in Florida according to a new survey by Susquehanna Polling and Research for the Center for American Greatness.
The phone survey of 500 likely voters conducted September 23-26 showed Biden with 46 percent and Trump with 43 percent support, with a 4.3 percent margin of error. Libertarian Jo Jorgensen gets 3 percent of the vote, while 8 percent of respondents remain undecided or refused to answer.
Both Trump and Biden are viewed favorably by 44 percent of those surveyed.
The latest poll confirms what other recent polls shave shown: Biden has trouble with Hispanic and Latino voters.
Trump outperforms Biden with Hispanics with 43 percent viewing him favorably compared to 40 percent for Biden. And Trump is winning more Hispanic support than Biden, topping him 45-43 percent. This is consistent with a Nevada poll released over the weekend by the Center for American Greatness and with Florida polling conducted by NBC News.
Among the poll’s other key findings: 55 percent of respondents said they believe the country is on the wrong track. The top-two issues for voters in the poll are jobs and the economy and the government’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic. Respondents split along party lines on both issues. Strengthening the economy and the jobs market is a top-two issue for 61 percent of Trump voters versus just 22 percent of Biden voters. The pandemic response is a top-two issue among 54 percent of Biden voters as opposed to 18 percent of Trump voters.
Is it only with the Latinos in Florida that Biden has trouble with or is it Latinos on other states?
