KANSAS CITY, MO – Remington Research Group has completed a second public and independent survey of likely Republican primary voters in Florida’s 19th Congressional District. The survey was conducted August 29, 2016. 1,119 likely Republican primary voters participated in the survey and the margin of error is +/-2.9%. The survey was paid for and commissioned independent of any campaign or committee. The first survey was conducted August 14 through August 15, 2016.

The data show that Francis Rooney holds 46% of the vote and leads his closest competitor, Chauncey Goss, by 15 points. The other candidate, Dan Bongino trails by 30 points with 16% support. Just 7% of likely Republican voters remain undecided.

The candidates in the Republican primary election for United States Congress are Francis Rooney, Dan Bongino and Chauncey Goss. If the election were held today, for whom would you vote?

Francis Rooney: 46%
Chauncey Goss: 31%
Dan Bongino: 16%
Undecided: 7%

The survey also found that 64% of likely voters have already cast their votes in the race. Of those that say they have voted, Rooney leads Goss by twelve points, 47% to 35%. Bongino garners 15% of the early vote with 3% refusing to say who they voted for.

The results of the first independent survey conducted by Remington Research Group in this campaign were questioned by the trailing candidates. NBC-2 News went as far as to write blatantly false information about the survey in addition to calling the poll “bogus.”

“Remington Research Group conducted a second independent and public survey of this race even with the scrutiny we faced when we released numbers two weeks ago,” said Titus Bond, Director of Remington Research Group. “Rooney’s lead remains solid and with two thirds of voters having already cast their ballot, this race is all but over.”

Bond continued, “Chauncey Goss alleged that he was tied in his internal polling. It is interesting to note that Goss’ campaign finance reports do not include any payments to polling firms, but either way, tomorrow we will find out who is right.”
