Jacksonville’s ABC News affiliate reports:
The University of North Florida’s Public Opinion Research Lab poll found that 51 percent of voters were going to vote for Joe Biden compared to 45 percent of voters who said they would vote for President Donald Trump.
The survey was comprised of 3,142 registered likely voters in Florida and took place between October 1 and October 4. 81 percent of the survey takers did vote in the 2018 primary election. 39 percent of the respondents were Republican, 38 percent were Democrat, and 22 percent were no party affiliation.
“This vast majority of responses from this survey were collected on the two days immediately following the debate and do not account for voter concerns following the President’s recent COVID-19 diagnosis,” Michael Binder, the director of the Public Opinion Research Lab, said.
