With only one previous poll finding resigned Rep. Ron DeSantis (R) taking the lead in the open Governor’s race before yesterday, two surveys found him to be topping Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum (D). The accompanying Gray Television/Strategic Research survey (see Florida Senate above) finds Mr. DeSantis holding a 48-45% lead. The 1892 polling organization (10/20-22; 2,500 FL registered voters; automated) sees DeSantis forging a one point, 47-46% edge. But, Gravis Marketing was also in the field (10/22-23; 773 FL likely voters) and comes to an opposite conclusion: Gillum up, 51-46%.
