Raleigh, N.C. – The 2000 presidential election recount in Florida is still a divisive topic, but after the results of the resulting Bush presidency are clear, Sunshine State voters would have preferred to have elected Al Gore over George W. Bush by three points (48-45) if they could do it over now. Independents prefer Gore by the same margin.
Florida ended its ban on gay residents adopting children last fall, but the issue still splits voters. 45% think that was the right move, but 43% think gay couples should still not be able to raise children. Independents are pretty strongly for it (50-36), but more Democrats (34%) disagree with the decision than Republicans agree (27%). As is the case on most social policies, the youngest voters (53-41) are most progressive, and the oldest voters least (39-48).
