TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Bush vs. Clinton could be a barnburner in Florida.
A Quinnipiac University poll released Tuesday shows former Gov. Jeb Bush and former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in a virtual tie in a hypothetical 2016 presidential race in Florida. The poll gave 44 percent to Clinton and 43 percent to Bush.
While presidential primaries and caucuses are still a year away --- and the fields of candidates are loaded with speculation — the poll indicates Bush would be the toughest opponent for Clinton in the critical swing state of Florida.
