More news from the Reuters/Ispos/UVA poll out of Florida:
A new poll released Wednesday shows Andrew Gillum ahead of Ron DeSantis by seven percentage points in the race for governor, while the U.S. Senate race is still in a dead heat.
The poll was conducted by Thompson Reuters, Ipsos and the University of Virginia Center for Politics, and it surveyed 2,000 adult Floridians online, with a 2.5 percent “credibility interval.”
According to the poll, 42 percent of respondents said they would vote for Gillum, the Democratic nominee, while 35 percent chose DeSantis, the Republican.
Republican Scott has a 1 percentage point lead over Nelson in the Reuters/Ipsos/University of Virginia Center for Politics Poll released Wednesday.
The poll found Scott had the support of 46 percent of likely voters. Nelson had support of 45 percent of likely voters.
Statistically, that’s a tie because the poll has a “credibility interval” of plus or minus 4 percentage points. That’s similar to a margin of error calculated for many polls.
The Reuters/Ipsos/UVA Poll was conducted Sept. 5 to 12. A sample of 2,015 Florida adults, including 1,000 likely voters, were interviewed online. Responses were weighted according to the latest government population estimates.
