PPP poll: Sink up 48-45 percent over Jolly

Published:

A Public Policy Polling survey says Democrat Alex Sink leads Republican David Jolly 48-45 percent, with Libertarian Lucas Overby at 6 percent, heading into Tuesday’s special election to replace the late Rep. C.W. Bill Young.

The poll said Sink lead Jolly 52-45 percent among those respondents who said they had already cast votes, and leading Jolly 61-27 percent among no-party or minor party voters.

The poll was done for the League of Conservation Voters, which backs Sink. PPP is a North Carolina-based, Democratic-oriented political polling firm that says its published polls are neutral, and uses automated-dial or “robopoll” technology. The March 7-9 poll included 702 likely voters for an error margin of 3.7 percentage points. The error margin among sections of the sample, including those who have already voted, would be higher.
