Seven in 10 likely Florida voters support a proposed constitutional amendment for medical marijuana -- outsized support that has remained relatively constant for more than a year, according to a new bipartisan survey.
“This support is broad-based and spans the electorate regardless of partisan, regional, or racial lines,” pollsters Anzalone Liszt Grove Research/Public Opinion Strategies wrote in an analysis of the survey, which was conducted for the amendment's backers, United for Care.
“Strong majorities support medical marijuana across media markets, regardless of whether they live in North, Central, or South Florida,” the pollsters wrote. Anazalone polls for Democrat Charlie Crist and President Obama; POS has surveyed extensively for the Republican Party of Florida and GOP candidates.
The United for Care poll jibes with others taken over the past year, including a Public Policy Polling survey released Tuesday that shows the Florida amendment would garner about 66 percent support.
