Between July and November 2015, a survey of those living in a Key West neighborhood revealed considerable opposition to using genetically modified mosquitos (sample size was 89 households).

In contrast, a recent Annenberg Public Policy survey (509 Florida respondents) tips the scale in the other direction. The Florida respondents were more likely to lean in the direction of GM mosquitos than those from other parts of the country. The center has released a guide for broadcasters covering the issue (there is some useful information for others in there as well).
