We have seen a number of Sunshine State Democratic gubernatorial primary polls in the past few months, but most of them have been conducted for Miami Beach Mayor Philip Levine and produced rather substantial leads for the survey sponsor. Now, the “Let’s Preserve the American Dream” organization conducted what appears to be an independent Democratic electorate poll and sees a much closer race.
The survey (6/5-9; 800 FL likely Democratic primary voters) still finds Mayor Levine topping the Democratic field, but he leads former US Rep. Gwen Graham only 24-21%. Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum is next with 11%, while Orlando businessman Chris King has 4% support, and wealthy businessman Jeff Greene attracts 3 percent. The previous Levine polls showed a double-digit support difference between he and Ms. Graham.
