Some good news today out of Florida courtesy of Rasmussen Reports’ latest poll:
Democrat Andrew Gillum holds a six-point lead over Republican Ron DeSantis in the race to be Florida’s next governor.
The first Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey of the race finds that Gillum earns 48% support to DeSantis’ 42% among Likely Florida Voters. Two percent (2%) prefer some other candidate, and eight percent (8%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)Among voters who say they are certain to vote in the upcoming election, Gillum leads 49% to 44%.
Current Republican Governor Rick Scott is term-limited and cannot seek reelection. He is running for the U.S. Senate against incumbent Democrat Bill Nelson, and the Florida Senate race is a virtual tie.
Forty-eight percent (48%) of Florida voters approve of the job Scott is doing; 47% disapprove. This includes 30% who Strongly Approve and 32% who Strongly Disapprove.
The survey of 800 Likely Voters in Florida was conducted on September 10-11, 2018 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3.5 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.
