I am proud that it appears that the State of Florida is going to help elect as President Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr.  We voted twice for Barack Obama as President and Joe Biden as Vice President.

Joe Biden is beating President Trump by 13 points in Florida — 51% to 38% — per a Quinnipiac University poll released Thursday. 
Why it matters: With its 29 electoral votes, Florida is a key state for the president to hang onto in order to win re-election.
  • Respondents favored Trump on handling the economy (50% to 47%) but thought Biden would be better at handling issues like health care, the coronavirus response, a crisis and racial inequality.
Flashback: In late April, respondents put Biden ahead of Trump in the same poll by just four points (46% to 42%).
  • And in mid-July 2016, Trump was ahead of Hillary Clinton by three points (42% to 39%).
The big picture: 70% think that the spread of coronavirus is out of control in the state, and A majority of Floridians (61%) believe Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) reopened the economy "too quickly."
  • 79% say that people in the state should be required to wear face masks in public. Florida currently has no mask mandate
  • 62% also believe that it will be unsafe to send kids to K-12 schools in the fall.
Methodology: The RDD telephone survey was conducted from July 16 – 20 to 924 Floridians who self-identified as registered voters with a margin of sampling error of +/- 3.2 percentage points.
