The Quinnpiac survey also gaged the level of interest Florida voters had in the 2020 election. It revealed 59% of Democrats and 51% of Republicans are closely following the 2020 campaign cycle.
The poll also shows Biden remains the favorite 2020 contender among moderate Democratic voters (51%) and voters above the age of 50 (52%).
Trump’s approval rating is still at around 41%, according to the Quinnipiac poll, which also showed that just a third of voters — including two-thirds of Democrats — wish for lawmakers to start impeachment proceedings against Trump.
Republican Party Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel noted how Quinnipiac polls published more than a year before the 2016 election predicted Hillary Clinton would beat Trump by a comfortable, double-digit margin.
There wasn’t a SINGLE Quinnipiac poll that showed @realDonaldTrump winning in 2016.
In the summer of 2015, they had Hillary up by 18 POINTS.
Their final poll had her winning by 7.
But now the media is taking their polling seriously?
