Change Research conducted a Florida poll (6/16-17; 1,130 FL likely Democratic primary voters via automated voice response system) and again found former Vice President Joe Biden leading in the 30- percentile range. But, the mover in this survey is South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg who bounces back into double-digits and creates a three-way race for second place. The ballot test finds Mr. Biden holding 33% support with Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) following at 20%, while Buttigieg and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) tie for third place at 15% apiece.
Florida is the fourth largest state at the Democratic National Convention with 219 first ballot delegates. If this poll were completely accurate, Biden, Sanders, Buttigieg, and Warren would all qualify for Florida convention votes under the Democratic Party delegate dispersion formula.
