Gruters leads Cox-Roush in ePoll of RPOF chair race

Don’t ask for poll results. You might get them. That’s a lesson for Deborah Cox-Roush supporters who Facebooked an unscientific, online polldaddy survey re: the Republican Party of Florida chair race.

A day later, and Joe Gruters is crushing the competition. Chances are, most of these ballots aren’t being web-cast by many of the 274 Republican committee voters. The results so far:

Gruters: 251, (80 percent)
Cox-Roush: 43, (14 percent)
Dave Bitner (Jefferson committeeman): 9, (3 percent)
DiMatteo (Pinellas committeeman): 5, (2 percent)
Sid Dinerstein (Palm Beach chair): 4, (1 percent)
