April 20, 2006 - Nelson Opens 29-Point Lead Over Harris In Florida, Quinnipiac University Poll Finds; Voters Divided On Citizenship For Immigrants
Democratic incumbent U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson has opened a 56 - 27 percent lead over U.S. Rep. Katherine Harris, his leading Republican challenger, with 14 percent undecided. Even 58 percent of Republicans expect Nelson to win, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today. This compares to a 53 - 31 percent lead for Sen. Nelson in a February 24 poll by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN uh-pe-ack) University.

Today's survey also shows Florida voters are conflicted about how to handle illegal immigration, with opinions shifting based on how questions are asked.

In this latest survey, Democrats back Nelson 83 - 8 percent, while Republicans back U.S. Rep. Harris 57 - 25 percent, down from 62 - 22 percent, and independent voters go with the Democrat 57 - 17 percent.

Nelson gets a 40 - 10 percent favorability, with 19 percent mixed and 31 percent who haven't heard enough to form an opinion. Harris gets a negative 17 - 37 percent favorability, with 15 percent mixed and 30 percent who haven't formed an opinion.

"Sen. Nelson has widened his lead by another 7 points over U.S. Rep. Harris since February and the reality is that there are now even fewer undecided voters for her to convert," said Peter Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute. "Given the Herculean effort that would be needed to close such a gap, even six months from election, time is running short for her to show progress."

"The fact that more than twice as many Floridians have an unfavorable opinion of Harris as have a favorable one makes her task even more formidable," Brown added.

In an open-ended question, where voters can give any answer, 13 percent of Florida voters now rank immigration as the most important problem facing the state, second only to education- related issues, listed by 24 percent.

Voters oppose 54 - 41 percent making it easier for illegal immigrants to become U.S. citizens. But voters split 48 - 47 percent making it easier for illegal immigrants to become legal workers.

And when voters are asked to choose between two approaches to the illegal immigration problem currently being considered by Congress:
  • 72 percent support a long-term process where an immigrant gets a temporary work visa, pays a fine and back taxes, learns English and ultimately becomes a citizen;
  • 24 percent support making illegal immigration a crime and barring illegal immigrants from the U.S.
Recent pro-immigrant demonstrations have left 38 percent of voters less sympathetic to the demonstrators' goals, while 17 percent are more sympathetic.

"Immigration has caught the attention of Florida voters and the issue's complexity is reflected in voter ambivalence. Public opinion is all over the map, especially on the key issue of citizenship," Brown said.

In an early look at the 2008 presidential race, New York Sen. Hillary Clinton is the pick of 43 percent of Florida Democrats, while former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani leads the Republican pack with 42 percent, followed by Arizona Sen. John McCain with 26 percent. In general election matchups, Giuliani beats Sen. Clinton 52 - 41 percent and McCain tops Clinton 48 - 42 percent in Florida.

From April 11 - 17, Quinnipiac University surveyed 951 Florida registered voters with a margin of error of +/- 3.2 percentage points. The survey includes 383 Democratic voters and 385 Republicans, each group with a margin of error of +/- 5 percentage points.

The Quinnipiac University Poll, directed by Douglas Schwartz, Ph.D., conducts public opinion surveys in Florida, Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and the nation as a public service and for research. For additional data-www.quinnipiac.edu and quicklinks

31. Two different approaches have been suggested to deal with illegal immigrants. Please tell me which comes closest to your view - A)Make illegal immigration a crime and not allow anyone who entered the country illegally to work or stay in the United States under any circumstances. OR B)Allow illegal immigrants to get temporary work visas, and allow them to earn permanent residence and eventual citizenship after a certain number of years if they learn English, pay a fine, pay any back taxes, and have no criminal record.

32. As you may know, recently there have been large demonstrations around the country by people who want Congress to change the law to make it possible for illegal immigrants to become legal residents and become citizens. Have those demonstrations made you more sympathetic or less sympathetic to their goals, or have they not affected your opinion on the issue at all?
