St. Petersburg Times poll: Fla. Democrats say count our primary

According to a new St. Petersburg Times/Bay News 9 statewide poll, the Democratic presidential contenders’ boycott of Florida had little effect on Democratic voters’ choices here, and an overwhelming plurality want the officially meaningless Jan. 29 results to count.

Lots of charts at the link. Seventy seven percent think its important that Florida delegates count and 24% are less likely to vote for the party’s nominee if the delegates are not counted. If they did revote 46% would vote for Clinton and 37% for Obama.

And who’s to blame? Twenty-eight percent blamed the Republican leaders of the Florida legislature, 25% blamed Howard Dean, 20% blamed the Florida Democratic Party, and the rest were divided between the candidates, no one, everyone and 14% didn’t know or refused to answer the question.
