Poll: Ken Bone leads Jill Stein in Florida


A man whose outfit at the second presidential debate made him an internet sensation polls higher than Green Party nominee Jill Stein in Florida, according to a new poll.

Ken Bone leads the Stein 4 percent to 1 percent in the Public Policy Polling (PPP) survey out Friday.

{mosads}Libertarian presidential nominee Gary Johnson, meanwhile, takes 5 percent support among the state’s likely voters.

Friday’s results found Hillary Clinton leading the presidential field in Florida, with the Democratic presidential nominee grabbing 46 percent.

Donald Trump, the Republican nominee, trails behind at 42 percent in the battleground state.

PPP surveyed 985 likely voters in Florida via telephone interviews Oct. 12-13. It has a 3.1 percentage point margin of error.

Bone became a star online after wearing a bright red sweater during last weekend’s debate at Washington University in St. Louis.

The unlikely celebrity first attracted notice on social media by asking Clinton and Trump a question on energy policy.

Bone has since become an overnight superstar in internet meme culture, even inspiring a “sexy” Halloween costume version of his outfit.
