A new poll has good news for GOP candidates in Florida.
According to new polling from the University of North Florida, both Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and Senator Marco Rubio are comfortably ahead of their Democrat opponents Charlie Crist and Val Demings.
Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis has the support of 55% of registered voters, with Democratic challenger Charlie Crist at 41%, according to a UNF Public Opinion Research Lab (PORL) poll.
“Given DeSantis’ historic fundraising and popularity among Republicans, his lead in this race is not surprising,” Dr. Michael Binder, PORL faculty director, said in a press release. “The surprise in these numbers is that a statewide race in Florida is closer to a blowout than a recount.”
Regarding the senatorial race, 54% of respondents indicated they would vote for Sen. Marco Rubio, against 43% of respondents who favored Democratic candidate Rep. Val Demings, according to Fox News.
From Fox News:
Fox News’ Power Rankings rate the race between DeSantis and Crist as “likely Republican” and the Florida Senate race as “leaning Republican.”
The general election will be held Tuesday, Nov. 8.
The survey of 622 registered, likely Florida voters from Oct. 17-22 has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.7 percentage points.
