Summary
This special topic poll, which is part of a continuing series of monthly surveys that solicit public opinion on the presidency and on a range of other political and social issues, asked Floridian respondents questions about their voting inclinations for the 2004 presidential race and the 2004 Florida United States Senate election. With respect to the presidential race, respondents were asked their likelihood of voting, for whom they would vote if elections were being held that day, and the likelihood of changing their vote. Respondents were also asked which presidential candidate -- George W. Bush or John Kerry -- would do a better job handling specific issues (e.g., the economy, Iraq, immigration issues with Latin America), which of those issues was the single most important issue in the vote for president, and which presidential candidate -- again Bush or Kerry -- would understand the problems of people like the respondent, would be a strong leader, could be trusted in a crisis, was a likable person, and do a better job coping with the main problems facing the nation over the next few years. Additional questions polled respondents on their approval or disapproval of the way George W. Bush was handling his job as president and the way Jeb Bush was handling his job as governor of Florida. Respondents were also asked about the nation's economy, how things were financially for them and their family compared to a year ago, their satisfaction level with the way the federal government responded to the impacts of hurricanes Charley, Frances, and Ivan in Florida, if the government's response to those hurricanes would impact respondents' potential to vote for George W. Bush, and whether they approved or disapproved of re-establishing diplomatic trade relations with Cuba. With respect to the Florida United States Senate election, respondents were asked for whom they would vote if elections were being held that day. Further questions asked respondents if they voted in the 2000 presidential elections, whether they were confident votes would be counted accurately, whether vote miscounts were honest mistakes or deliberate miscounts to help one candidate win, and which candidate would benefit most from the miscounting of votes. Background information includes voter registration, political party affiliation, religious affiliation, sex, number of children living in the household, education, age, race, language of interview, marital status, income, and Hispanic origin
