Democrat Val Demings Surges Against Marco Rubio In Florida Poll

Marco Rubio is getting nervous as Val Demings is surging with 45 percent of the vote, according to the new Progress Florida and Florida Watch poll.  And even for those voters who are not familiar with her, they do not like what Rubio has done to the country.

Among those ever mysterious independent voters, which comprise about 30 percent of the state’s voters, Demings has held her own against Rubio. Pollsters reported that in this group:

‘[A full] 36% of voters have a favorable view of the Orlando Congresswoman, 30% hold an unfavorable view and 34% said they could not rate her.’

The poll indicated that 52 percent of Florida’s voters viewed the senator negatively. And only 43 percent viewed him favorably. That did not leave much room for any swing voters, just five percent.

Demings’ Campaign Manager Zack Carroll “cheered the poll results:”

‘Floridians want strong leaders who will keep their costs down and communities safe, not career politicians who refuse to show up for work. Our momentum continues to grow as Chief Demings travels from the Panhandle to the Keys highlighting her American Dream story and holding Rubio accountable for failing to deliver for Florida. This November, Floridians will send 27-year career law enforcement officer Val Demings to the United States Senate and end Marco Rubio’s nearly three-decade political career.’

Geoff Puryear and Annika Ramnath used a technique that weighted results based upon an active Republican constituency and wrote:

‘Importantly, this data comes from a poll weighted to reflect what would be the most pro-Republican electorate in recent history: with registered Republicans making up 41% of the electorate and registered Democrats 37%.’

“For the last decade the Republican advantage has never been bigger than 2 points. By party identification, the sample is 47% Republican and 44% Democrat.’

The pollsters also did nothing to favor President Joe Biden. It appeared that 57 percent of the interviewees had a negative view of him,” and only 40 percent held a positive view of him. And yet Demings did well.

The pollsters said:

‘Still, as we are seeing across the country, Democratic candidates are overperforming the president’s ratings and that is very much the case in Florida, still the nation’s largest swing state.’

During a “generic ballot test,’ the poll similarly found how Florida voters felt about Republicans and Democrats. A full 46 percent were inclined toward the Democrats and 46 percent toward Republicans.

Florida numbers tell us that this occurred in some of the state’s “most closely divided political districts.” That was bad news for states around the country.”
