Democrats cling to hope in FL courtesy of dubious polls showing GOP with narrow lead

Florida politics is being roiled by leftists who claim to see light at the end of the midterm election tunnel, praying that it isn’t an oncoming train that will brutally roll right over them, but they may be jumping the gun.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) are still favored in their respective races this fall despite the hype heard coming from the left. And polls that many consider biased and skewed proclaiming their downfall may be just about as trustworthy as the one predicting that Nikki Fried would trounce Charlie Crist in the Democratic primary — he stomped her by 24.4 points.

Nevertheless, citing polling such as it is, the left now asserts that both DeSantis and Rubio are winning by less than landslide margins, according to the Washington Examiner.

“I don’t want to sound overly optimistic. We still have a lot of work to do,” one Democratic consultant involved in key races in Florida stated, according to The Hill. “But things are trending in the right direction.”


“Florida suffers from a little bit of a bad reputation these days — and that’s probably well earned,” a national Democratic strategist told the media outlet. “But we don’t get to pick and choose. It’s the third largest state in the country. We’ve got to compete, and national Democrats have to act like Florida is a swing state, because it definitely is.”

Rubio is leading in most of the recent polling there with one exception that came from the pollster who disastrously predicted the Fried win. However, hs is below the 50 percent win line most of the time in the polls. A survey that was conducted by Tony Fabrizio, who did work for former President Trump, and a Democratic pollster has the two-term Florida senator ahead by a mere 2 points.

DeSantis’ lead looks stronger. But the numbers show him winning by only 3 points in the Fabrizio poll and he is up by only 4 points in the Susquehanna poll. According to their surveys, he is still under 50 percent.

If the polls are correct, Republicans will still win in Florida but it will be much closer than it should be and could have national implications that the left is salivating over.

Democrats would love to convince Americans that it could also be an indicator that there will not be a red wave in November during the midterms due to the Supreme Court ruling on abortion. That is likely a doomed daydream on the left’s part but election results will tell the tale.

Not only are Republicans outpacing Democrats in voter registration, according to The Hill, but Latino voters are also turning away from them and voting conservatively which spells disaster in Florida.

The left is also desperately trying to paint a picture of DeSantis not being as popular or successful as he really is in Florida.

History may have a rude awakening in store for the Democrats. In 2020, the final RealClearPolitics polling average showed Biden leading Trump by 0.9 percentage points. There was one blip according to the Washington Examiner showing a Trump lead at the time.

Trump went on to win Florida by 3.3 points that November and he received a majority of the vote, 51.2 percent. He even upended the final Trafalgar poll.

Once again, Americans are left with polling they can no longer trust as leftist media and pundits across the nation proclaim that they are winning when the opposite is true.
