Former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg edges former Vice President Joe Biden as Florida Democrats get ready for their presidential primary next month, a new poll shows.
At the end of last week, Florida Politics released a St. Pete Polls survey looking at the March 17 primary and Bloomberg pulls 27 percent, enough to beat out at Biden who takes 26 percent. Last month, before the former vice president stumbled in Iowa and New Hampshire, a St. Pete Polls survey had Biden way out front in Florida at 41 percent with Bloomberg at 17 percent.
Those two candidates are far ahead of the rest of the field. While 11 percent remain undecided, former South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg takes 10.5 percent, right ahead of U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., at 10.4 percent.
The rest of the field stands in single digits. U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., pulls 9 percent while U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., takes 5 percent and businessman Tom Steyer gets 1 percent.
The poll of 3,047 likely voters in the Florida Democratic primary was taken from Feb. 12 through Feb. 13 and had a margin of error of +/- 1.8 percent.
