A shocking St. Pete Polls survey late last month has Mike Bloomberg surging to second in the Florida presidential primary.
The newest version from the same outfit, released Friday, shows Bloomberg is now slightly ahead among Florida Democrats, edging out former Vice President Joe Biden.
St. Pete Polls conducted the survey among likely Florida voters. More than 27% selected Bloomberg as their top choice. Biden secured just under 26% support in the survey.
That’s within the poll’s margin of error, which is 1.8 percentage points. But it marks a drastic shift from the previous snapshot of the race taken by St. Pete Polls, when Biden performed 15 points better.
That version showed Bloomberg in second place with 17% support. Biden, meanwhile, received 41% of the vote.
