Here’s the latest news out of Florida:
A Sept. 17 – 20 poll by the University of Florida shows Florida being Florida, with neck and neck races for governor and U.S. Senate. The live caller survey (MoE =/- 3.95 percent) shows Democrat Bill Nelson and Republican Rick Scott each with 45 percent support, while Democratic gubernatorial nominee Andrew Gillum narrowly leads Republican Ron DeSantis, 47 percent to 43 percent.
In the Senate race, 13 percent of Democrats said they were unsure who they supported while just 4 percent of Republicans said so.
“It’s still early in the election season and even though Gillum has a small lead, a lot can happen in the next six weeks. Nelson and Scott are currently tied, but one bit of hope for Nelson is that more Democrats are unsure who they will vote for and partisans will come home in November,” said Dr. Michael Binder, faculty director of the Public Opinion Research Lab at UNF.
