2020 FL Democratic Primary Poll 2

March 14th, 2020

Joe Biden has a commanding 29-point lead in the Florida Democratic Primary, according to a poll conducted from March 11th to March 13th by Point Blank Political. In a nine-person race, Biden gets 57.4 percent of the vote to Sanders’ 28.8 percent. In a two-person race, Biden gets 60.5 percent to Sanders’ 31.7 percent. Both levels of support are statistically insignificantly different from Point Blank Political’s previous Florida poll, which occurred shortly after Super Tuesday. Crosstab data suggest that Biden will get most of Pete Buttigieg, Michael Bloomberg, and Amy Klobuchar’s supporters, while Sanders will likely get most of Elizabeth Warren’s supporters. The poll also asked voters about early voting and who they cast their early ballot for. The sample size was 3,165 and the margin of error is 2.3 percent (95-percent confidence interval). The data was collected via text-to-web and email-to-web from March 11th to March 13th.

The results were weighted by gender, race, age, and college degree status using a Random Iterative Model. The model’s weighting efficiency was 57 percent. The weighting efficiency was primarily driven downward by the raw sample being tilted towards those with a higher education, and slightly tilted towards white voters. RIM models correct for this by appropriately weighting groups that are under or overrepresented in the sample. Population estimates for the demographics were obtained through a combination of third-party provided voter-file data and exit polls.
