Another poll, another lead for Andrew Gillum; PPP pegs him up 4 points over Ron DeSantis

Another poll, another lead for Andrew Gillum.

The newest survey from Public Policy Polling has Gillum, the Democratic nominee for Governor, ahead by four points in his race against Republican Ron DeSantis.

The survey sampled 779 registered voters Sept. 28-30. Gillum earned 48 percent support while DeSantis sat at 44 percent.

Gillum has now led DeSantis in every major poll released since the two secured their nominations on Aug. 28, according to analysis by RealClearPolitics.

Florida Democrats have also taken to mocking DeSantis over lackluster turnout at a recent event. The Democrats used those photos to make the case that momentum is behind their candidate.

Gillum also issued an address to a fired-up crowd of Democrats over the weekend at the Miami-Dade Democratic Party’s Blue Gala.

He also recently earned the endorsement of the Sun Sentinel, as well as a group of Puerto Rican leaders throughout the country.

If Gillum were to “bring it home” in November, he would be Florida’s first elected Democratic Governor in 20 years.
