Miami Dade County Poll: Kerry Running Stronger Than Gore in 2000

John Kerry leads George Bush 54.3-41.5 percent of Miami Dade County LV’s, according to a new Miami Herald Poll conducted 10/22-5. Miami Herald reporter Jim Defede notes “In 2000, Al Gore beat Bush by almost 40,000 votes in Miami-Dade County…According to the Herald poll, done by Zogby International, Kerry is positioned to win Miami-Dade by anywhere from 90,000 to 100,000 votes. A margin that large in Florida’s most populous county would be hard for Bush to make up across the rest of the state.”
