Florida Democrat Primary: No Visible Damage to Hillary's Heat Shields; Still 30 Points Atop Obama -- In a Democratic Primary for President of the United States in Florida today, 12/05/07, eight weeks to the vote, Hillary Clinton leads Barack Obama by 30 points, according to two newly released SurveyUSA tracking polls, one conducted before the 11/28/07 Republican debate in Florida and one conducted after, exclusively for WFLA-TV in Tampa. Today, it's Clinton 54%, Obama 24%, virtually identical to a SurveyUSA poll last week and only marginally tighter than a SurveyUSA poll a month ago, in early November, which showed Clinton 37 points atop Obama. All 3 SurveyUSA polls were conducted after a 10/30/07 Democratic candidate debate at which some perceive Clinton did not have a strong performance. John Edwards' support is flat across the 3 polls. Though some polls show Obama gaining material ground on Clinton, in Florida, as of today, that is not true. Obama, Clinton and Edwards, at this hour, are all trending sideways.
