    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton maintains a substantial lead in Florida ahead of the Democratic primary as she has gained support of the majority of female voters, according to a new poll released on Friday.

    "A huge lead among women propels former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to a 59 — 33 percent lead over Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont among Florida likely Democratic primary voters," a Quinnipiac University poll found.

    Sixty-nine percent of women intend to vote for Clinton, according to the poll. However, 47 percent of men choose Senator Sanders.

    Quinnipiac University Poll assistant director Peter Brown predicted that Clinton’s victory in Florida is guaranteed.

    "With her 26-point lead over Sen. Bernie Sanders, Secretary Hillary Clinton would have to undergo a political meltdown of historic proportions to lose this contest," he said.

    The Florida Democratic primary is scheduled to take place on March 15.
