Democratic gubernatorial nominee Andrew Gillum and Democratic U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson have slight leads over their Republican opponents — but they’re so close that the races effectively are tied, in the poll conducted by Suffolk University for the USA Today Network.
A different poll, released Tuesday by the University of North Florida, reported the same result in the Senate contest, but a bigger lead for Gillum in the gubernatorial race.
— Gillum, 45 percent; Republican gubernatorial nominee Ron DeSantis, 44 percent, in the Suffolk University/USA Today poll.
If the polls are correct (big-ass grain of salt on that one) it means that DeSantis has been coming from behind. Not too long ago Gillum was all set and comfy ahead between 6 and 8 points in the polls and now it is all but a tie? Not going to predict one way or the other, but if you haven’t voted for DeSantis, you need to do so ASAP. According to what I read somewhere, the ballot is so long this year that is taking up to 15 minutes per voter to fill it. Do the Early Voting and don’t wait for the last second.
And don’t forget Florida is still one of the very few states that does not allow carry at the polls, so be VERY careful. You never know who wants to do mischief upon your person, political or otherwise.
PS: Some idiot was turned away from wearing a Trump T-Shirt to the polls. Leave the political crap at home, the important thing is to vote!
