Graham v. Bush

Granted, polls this far out are of dubious usefulness, but this is still interesting, and will blunt Graham's argument that he is more electable than the other Democrats because of Florida.

Analysts say Sen. Bob Graham's strength for his bid for the presidency is centered in Florida, the nation's biggest swing state, but a new poll doesn't show it.

A telephone survey of 600 registered voters Florida released Monday shows the Democratic senator trailing President Bush by nine percentage points, 52-43. Five percent of the voters were undecided.

Graham is undefeated in five statewide elections for governor and senator, but the president's popularity appears to be too much at the moment for him to win the state's 27 electoral votes.
