According to the latest FAU/Mainstream Research poll, former President Trump is leading President Biden in Florida, even among “non-binary” voters. The survey, conducted from October 27 to November 11, interviewed 946 Florida adults registered to vote.
Respondents were asked, “If the election for President were held today, and the candidates were Joe Biden and Donald Trump, which candidate would you support?” Out of the participants, 49 percent expressed their support for Trump, while Biden trailed behind with 39 percent. Ten percent preferred “other,” and two percent remained undecided.
A closer examination of the data reveals that Trump is leading Biden by 23 points among males. Additionally, Trump is making substantial gains among female voters, garnering 40 percent support compared to Biden’s 42 percent.
Surprisingly, Trump also edges out Biden among “non-binary” voters, with 44 percent supporting him and 42 percent favoring Biden. It is worth noting that the survey has a margin of error of +/- 3.2 percent.
While Biden leads Trump among black voters in Florida, with 71 percent to 17 percent support, Trump is ahead among Hispanic voters, with 55 percent favoring him and 31 percent supporting Biden. Another setback for Biden is that 62 percent of respondents in Florida at least somewhat disapprove of his job as president, with 52 percent strongly disapproving.
It is important to highlight that Trump won Florida in both the 2016 and 2020 presidential elections by narrow margins. In 2016, he emerged victorious against Hillary Clinton with a 1.3 percent margin and increased his lead to 3.3 percent against Biden in the 2020 election, with a margin of 371,696 votes compared to 119,770 votes in the previous election.
This survey is consistent with recent polls that show Trump leading Biden in several crucial swing states.
