Telephone Survey
Doug Kaplan Founder and CEO Gravis Marketing ,states, Medical Marijuana is at it's magic number of 60% I believe getting 60% is difficult but without opposition, medical marijuana passes with 65-66%, the question is does it translate to votes for Crist.

Gravis Marketing and Human Events conducted a random telephone survey of 907 registered voters in Florida by automated calls to landlines between 4/23/14 and 4/25/14 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.

Results indicate a modest, but growing majority of support for the medical marijuana amendment in the latest political poll. 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 race between Rick Scott and Charlie Crist remains relatively close with 44% of polled voters stating that if the election were held today that they would vote for Rick Scott and 43% stating they would cast their vote for Rick Scott. 5% of voters revealed they would vote for Adrian Wyllie while 9% expressed they were unsure about their vote.
