Ashley Moody in Excellent Shape to Win Second Term as Florida’s Attorney General, Poll Shows

A new poll from Mason Dixon shows state Attorney General Ashley Moody in excellent shape to win a second term.

The poll of likely voters shows Moody taking 50 percent of them while former Orange County State Attorney Aramis Ayala gets 37 percent and 13 percent are not sure.

Ayala, who garnered national attention for having then Gov. Rick Scott reassign cases after she refused to seek the death penalty, won the Democratic primary in August. Moody did not face any challengers on the Republican side.

Moody gets 55 percent of men and 46 percent of women. Ayala takes 33 percent of men and 41 percent of women.

Both candidates have nailed down their party bases with 86 percent of Republicans for Moody and 79 percent of Democrats for Ayala. Moody leads with voters outside the major parties 47 percent to 29 percent but 24 percent of these voters are undecided with five weeks to go.

The poll of 800 likely Florida voters was taken from Sept. 26 through Sept. 28 and had a margin of error of +/- 3.5 percent.
