Since gubernatorial candidate Philip Levine (D) commissioned the aforementioned Public Policy Polling survey (see FL-Senate above), it naturally concentrated on the open Florida Governor’s race. According to the Democratic primary data, Mr. Levine has expanded his lead over former Rep. Gwen Graham (D-Tallahassee), to 29-21% with Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum and businessman Chris King trailing with only single-digit support. In general election match-ups, pairings featuring Levine and Graham top Republicans Adam Putnam, the state Agriculture Commissioner and former Congressman, and Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-Palm City/Daytona Beach) in all scenarios by one to five points.
The conclusions for both the Governor and Senate race is that both elections are too close to call, and we are headed for another typically close Florida election season in 2018.
