70 Percent of Floridians Support Legalization of Medical Marijuana
Unsurprisingly Democrats and independents support the idea the most, but even 56 percent of Republicans back the idea. In fact, only 24 percent of Floridians overall are opposed to medical marijuana.
Granted, this is a poll conducted by a group backing the measure, so take the exact number with a grain of salt.
Though, the pull found that support is strongest in Orlando and Miami (no surprise there), and that Hispanics, blacks and white women are more likely to be in favor of the idea. Of course, all those voters groups tend to be Democratic-leaning, and if the measure made it to ballot it could affect turnout in the 2014 gubernatorial race.
