New Poll: Barbara Sharief Commands a Dominant 52-Point Lead Over Chad Klitzman and Rodney Jacobs Jr.

New Poll: Barbara Sharief Commands a Dominant 52-Point Lead Over Chad Klitzman and Rodney Jacobs Jr.

PR Newswire

MIRAMAR, Fla., June 11, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Today Dr. Barbara Sharief is unveiling the results of a new poll conducted by her campaign. The poll was conducted both live and by text and surveyed voters in the weeks leading up to state qualifying, which begins today, June 10, 2024. With vote-by-mail ballots being sent to voters in just four weeks, the poll's findings show only 4% of the voters have heard of Rodney Jacobs Jr., and only 6% have heard of Chad Klitzman! These results are in stark contrast to Dr. Barbara Sharief's 81% name ID which is logical as she has held elected office for 14 years as a City Commissioner of Miramar,  Broward County Mayor and Commissioner.

In a three-way match-up between Dr. Sharief, Mr. Jacobs Jr. and Mr. Klitzman the results were welcoming news for Dr. Sharief, Broward County's two-time Mayor. She received 59% of the vote while her two opponents were far behind, with Mr. Jacobs Jr. receiving 4% of the vote and Mr. Klitzman only 3%. Just 34% of the voters said they were undecided or refused to say who they were voting for, which is bad news for Dr. Sharief's opponents as they have no pathway to victory in this survey.

Dr. Sharief said, "Although these polling results mimic the findings of previous polls that our campaign has conducted, I am still campaigning as if I were behind, as I am taking nothing for granted in this election. Despite my 18-month effort, I've noticed a surprising absence of my opponents, Chad and Rodney, at Democratic party events, encountering them only a few times amidst hundreds of community engagements."

Dr. Sharief pointed out, "The poll results just solidify that likely voters simply do not know who they are".  With only 40 state senators representing 22 million residents in Florida, experience matters greatly. Polling indicates an overwhelming preference (88% to 6%) for candidates with my level of experience over newcomers."

Dr. Sharief has garnered an impressive list of current and former elected officials who have endorsed her campaign. In total she has received more than 86 public endorsements and more will be unveiled in the coming weeks. She is most proud of the community leaders who have put their faith in her campaign. Most of the leadership of the Broward Democrat Party have given their public support of Dr. Sharief's quest to replace the term-limited State Senator Lauren Book. With just 71 days before Election Day and voting by mail beginning in the first week of July, the momentum is indisputable as Dr. Sharief is poised to have a resounding victory in the August Democratic Primary!

About this poll: Certainly: This survey comprises responses from 558 very likely Democratic primary voters and was conducted within the timeframe of May 27th to May 31st, 2024.
