Gravis Marketing Florida Telephone Survey On Medical Marijuana and The Governors Race

(PR Web Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Winter Springs, Florida (PRWEB) June 27, 2014 Human Events-Gravis Marketing conducted a random survey of 1232 registered voters in Florida by automated calls to landlines a between and 6/21/14 and 6/23/14 regarding support for the proposed Constitutional Amendment legalizing medical marijuana on the set for the November 2014 ballot and the upcoming Gubernatorial and Attorney General Elections. The results have a margin of error of ±3.

Gravis Marketing Results indicate a modest, but growing majority of support for the medical marijuana amendment. In the Governor's race, Charlie Crist and Rick Scott remains relatively close with Scott overtaking Crist's previously held 4-point advantage over the last three months. In addition, the race for the Attorney General's seat will likely be a three-way contest with Bondi holding a cushion over Thurston and Sheldon with a significant amount of unsure voters who could potentially tighten up the race. The results for the Governor and Attorney General's race results have continued to remain steady when compared to a similar poll conducted in April.

Highlights from the survey include: Governor    •  Respondents revealed that the race between Rick Scott and Charlie Crist remains relatively close with 41% of polled voters stating that if the election were held today that they would vote for Rick Scott and 39% stating they would cast their vote for Charlie Crist. 6% of voters revealed they would vote for Adrian Wyllie while 15% expressed they were unsure about their vote. Attorney General    •  When surveyed about the Attorney General race, voters indicated that if the election for Attorney General were held today, 43% would vote for Pam Bondi, while 38% stated they would vote for Perry Thurston and only 5% stated they would cast a vote for Bill Wohlsifer. 16% of voters stated they were uncertain as to their vote for Attorney General.

   •  With George Sheldon added to the questionnaire in place of Perry Thurston, Bondi's support remained the same, while 35% of voters expressed support for George Sheldon. Unsure voters increased from 15% to 16%. Medical Marijuana    •  When polled regarding their broad support for the amendment, a modest majority, 50% of the surveyed voters, indicated general support for the Amendment while 37% expressed opposition and 13% indicated they were unsure of their position.

   •  When compared to the April survey conducted on the issue, support for the proposed amendment only sat at 45% with 46% indicating opposition. This shift is also marked by an increase in voters who expressed uncertainty.
