Before billionaire former US Senate candidate Jeff Greene became an active Democratic gubernatorial candidate, Miami Beach Mayor Philip Levine appeared to have an advantage over former US Rep. Gwen Graham (D-Tallahassee). A new St. Pete Polls automated survey (7/30-31; 1,652 FL likely Democratic primary voters) finds Ms. Graham again holding down first place with 29%, and now followed by Greene at 23%. Mayor Levine drops to third place with 19%, and Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum posting 12% support.
Now, another new twist just occurred. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) endorsed Mayor Gillum this week, so could this help him move up in the field and possibly challenge for the lead? With the Florida primary scheduled for August 28th, the new month promises to bring intense political action as the many candidates fight through to primary Election Day.
