Post-Michael poll: Andrew Gillum, Ron DeSantis deadlocked; Rick Scott narrowly leads Bill Nelson

GILLUM_DESANTIS (1)

In the first poll since Hurricane Michael devastated the Panhandle — and changed the course of state politics — the race for Florida Governor is virtually tied.

Twenty days before Election Day, Democrat Andrew Gillum is at 47 percent, while Republican Ron DeSantis is at 46. However, among those who say they have already voted, DeSantis is at 49 percent, while Gillum is at 45 percent.

A similar scenario is set up for Florida’s U.S. Senate race — heading into the stretch in dead-heat fashion, according to the new survey by St. Pete Polls. Republican Gov. Rick Scott has a two-point lead over Democratic incumbent U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson.

The poll comes with a definitive asterisk as respondents in portions of the Panhandle, specifically the Panama City media market, where Michael delivered his lethal blow, are under-sampled. A slight plurality of these voters typically supports Republican candidates.

Regardless, as Gillum and DeSantis try to find that pose looking still concerned about hurricane victims while scrambling for those last few votes, Florida appears headed toward the kind of election-night gubernatorial nail-biter the state saw in both 2010 and 2014 when Scott secured one-point victories only as final returns were posted.

There remain only a few of those last votes, according to the poll. Reform party candidate Darcy Richardson captures about 2 percent support in the Governor’s race poll, while 5 percent of Florida voters say they are still undecided.

The survey was conducted by St. Pete Polls, has a sample size of 1,974 respondents and has a 2.2 percent margin of error.

In the race for Florida’s U.S. Senate seat, Scott is setting up for what might be another nail-biter for his own record. He has a narrow lead over Nelson, 49 to 47 percent. Scott is at 50 percent with those who have already voted.

Respondents were also asked to rate Scott and Gillum’s response to Hurricane Michael. While Scott received strong marks for his efforts, Gillum’s numbers are a mixed bag.

Sixty-one percent of voters approve of how Scott has handled the response to Michael, while 21 percent do not, and 18 percent are unsure. Gillum, the Mayor of Tallahassee, is at 44/30 approve/disapprove with 25 percent unsure.

Compared with previous polls, spreads have tightened in the battle for independent voters, and across nearly every demographic group in the new poll. Past polling showed independents breaking solidly for the Democrats Gillum and Nelson, but this poll shows Gillum with only a 2 percent advantage and Nelson with a 5 percent edge. In past surveys, women were also breaking decidedly toward Democrats and men toward Republicans, but this time, the differences were mostly statistically insignificant.

    Gillium supports open border, more crime, more drugs, MS13
    Abolish immigration agents
    1 billion for TEACHERS! Increased taxes small and mid size business, inc. taxes for all
    Eliminate Medicare, Medicaid
    Socialized medicine…those who paid 40 yrs. taxes will no longer enjoy private doctors,same benefits as illegals
    Medicare for all will cost 13 trillion. Does not know where money is coming from.
    Florida will become…like California 7k homeless, drug addicts living on the streets, housing unaffordable residents having to leave the state! Get out and VOTE for De Santis who has served our country in the Navy, supports our values, of freedom and prosperity. Offers jobs, prison reform, supports making quality healthcare at affordable prices. Supports illegal immigration reform and will protect open borders to decrease smugglers, cartel, human trafficking of women and children.

        Rick Scott should be in prison. He steals from the public, he has enriched his personal wealth by close to $1B that he has stolen from the citizens of Florida. DeSantis appears to have no policy other than whatever Trump says, he supports. Another wannabe who will take his cut from wealthy donors

        There’s nothing fake but socialism/communistic ideologies that Andrew Gillum stands for, Job killing 1 billion dollar tax hike, mrans more property taxes, higher fees on everyday items like cars, everyday items people use everyday, He wants open borders and welfare benefits for all illegal immigrants, Government run healthcare, will cause more wait times, where government bureaucrats make your healthcare decisions, and depending on your age if the will pay for it, and he’s under criminal investigation under FBI into city of Tallahassee, corruption and use of public office fir personal gain, Just remember Florida’s economy has risen over 1 trillion dollars, reduced state debt by 10 billion, Florida has over 1.6 million new jobs, and Florida’s unemployment rate dropped.under 4%, so a vote fir Gillum will be a vote fir communist socialism, and turn Florida into California, just think of a state income tax. Floridians will pay for of Gillum’s make believe Utopia.

            What amazing record of service diloes he have. Tallahassee has the highest rate of violent crimes (rape/ murder ) in FL. He will turn FL into a sanctuary state which makes me sick. He wants to abolish ICE. He has an curuptio. Investigation for “kickbacks” while he mayor. He wants to end the Homestead exemption The free collage for all and my guess he will end the MERIT based scholarship. The plans to have a 40% business tax which will kill the economic boom of FL. He is wants to enforce tighter EPA REGULATIONS in FL. He is anti 2nd admenment He wants to decrease police officers and get rid of jails. He wants to abolish the death penalty in FL (Parkland parents and students should be upset. He had a horrible response fo hurricsin zhermsnid by turning away utility companies help that were not local. The people of Tallahassee went weeks without power. He promises medicare for all which he will never be able to do because it is a federal program. He is backed by left wingers Soros, Styers. Clinton, endorsed by Obama, Black Livss Matter, The DreAm .Builders, etc. there is so much wrong with Gillum there is no way he is right for aFL.

Our state is the top in job creation, budget, growth,etc. Rick Scott has been there for us and as far as “red tide” is concerned, it is a naturally occurring thing that happens every year. He has demanded the Army Corp of Engineers stop dumping their polluted water in the Gulf and they IGNORE HIM! I live here ON THE BEACH so I know exactly what is going on.

      Medicare for all is cheaper that current system with big insurance companies getting between patient and Dr and rationing care adding layers of beaurocracy and delays. Anyone with 2 functioning brain cells knows that getting the greedy money grubbibg insurers out of healthcare benefits everyone except for them. Ignorant people are hung up on this private health care is good idea. The object of any company (including insurance health care) is to charge as much as the market will bear (ie highest prices) while reducing the costs (ie heath care provided to the people). That is why for profit health care doesnt work. You get highest costs and lowest possible care the insurers can get away with. Last year the 4 or 5 biggest insurance cos pocketed over $30B in profits. That is reduced care higher costs. You cant put a middle man between the patient and Dr and think it will reduce costs. That is just Ignorant.

        It’s easy to see that you guys voting for Gillum are either out of staters coming here to enjoy the state of Florida that is free from taxes and high crime like California, Detriot, and other Democrat strong holds or you’ve been brain washed by your left wing professors that won’t leave this country to live their socialist dreams elsewhere. The Democratic party is no longer the centrist party of old but has become a mix bag of poeple that will ruin America with policies that the rest of the world is currently rejecting as they have woken up to the harsh reality of socialism. Everyone coming to America comes here because it offers a dream that will become a nightmare with politicians like Gillum. There is no free lunch, we don’t need government run health care with it’s inefficiencies. What we need is a little reform to the system we have to make it more competitive. We need teacher to start teaching correctly without political bias and the students will pick capitalism over socialism every time. It’s easy to see you guys have never lived in a communist country as I have. I’ll give you one month living like a real Cuban in Cuba and all of you will become Republicans.

          You don’t have to live in a communist country, to understand that you don’t want that for this country! We fought too many misguided wars to know this. If you take care of your citizens like every first world country (Europe, Canada, Australia) health care, education, fair wages, you will have prosperity. If you follow the Latin American/Trump model, all the wealth goes to a very small group of super wealthy and once they cut all the great socIal programs and the middle class goes down hill, we can end up with Castro’s Cuba, Chavez’s Venezuela or what’s his name in Peru! Democrats’ started social
          Security and Medicaid, Medicare, minimum wage public education, scholarship programs to make this country strong. Republicans are trying to rip it all away and give a trillion dollar tax cuts to the people who least need it.

      Liberal Democrat BILL NELSON and Socialist ANDREW GILLUM are running for Senate & Governor respectively. Nelson / Gillum both proudly supports abolishing ICE, sanctuary cities, amnesty for millions of illegal aliens, using taxpayer funds for illegal aliens & DACA. In addition, both are weak on border security and national defense.

      If you OPPOSE illegal immigration, taxpayer funds used for illegal aliens, sanctuary cities, amnesty r Please VOTE NO for BILL NELSON & ANDREW GILLUM this November….we can’t afford anymore Democrats.

      Vote this election for candidates who prioritize citizens over illegal aliens (bet you thought that was a given …not anymore.) Those who oppose sanctuary cities, open borders, non citizens voting, amnesty for millions of illegal aliens and taxpayer funded in state college tuition discounts for illegals. That means NO Democrats. Democrats want to encourage, reward, protect illegal aliens with jobs, amnesty, drivers licenses, discounts for college tuition, scholarships, then after they’re here….protect them from deportation. This creates MORE illegal entry and the Democrats know this.

      Recent Gallup poll- almost 60% of Democrats now view socialism positively, little changed from 2010 survey.

      To Democrats programs like “Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals” (DACA) and “Temporary Protective Status” (TPS.) there is nothing temporary about these programs. To Democrats these are permanent programs with a false name to mislead the public…..and it worked. Once again Democrats have found and used liberal judges to stop these programs from deporting. The goal for Democrats is to flood the country with illegal aliens & refugees and fight against / eliminate deportations.
      Notice how Democrats fight to the death against any voted ID laws.

      The current migration at our southern border is costing taxpayers a Kings Ransom. Fleeing persecution? or fleeing for freebies? they sure don’t stay in Mexico when they reach “safety” or ask for political asylum in Mexico. Why? because Mexico will give them NOTHING. So they make the long journey to our border, our generous Democrats and our tax dollars. Just debating DACA in congress is costing taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars….. thank the parents.

      Just a few examples of the more outrageous costs associated with illegal immigration, we will pass this burden on to our children and grand children as has been passed on to us.

      *The cost of educating illegal aliens children is staggering. From K-12 it costs taxpayers $122,000 for EACH illegal alien student. This does not include the billions spent on bilingual education for illegal aliens.

      *Taxpayers in numerous states are funding in state college tuition discounts for illegal aliens. Cost to taxpayers over a billion dollars annually.

      *30% percent of all Federal Prison inmates are illegal aliens.Does not include local jails and State Prisons. At $21,000 per year expense per inmate in Federal Prison U do the math.

      *$3Million Dollars a DAY is spent to incarcerate, process Illegal aliens in the Criminal justice system. I repeat 3 MILLION a DAY.

      *$2.2Billion dollars a year is spent on is spent on food assistance programs such as SNAP (food stamps) WIC, & free school lunches.

      If you OPPOSE illegal immigration, taxpayer funds used for illegal aliens, sanctuary cities, non citizens voting, open borders, amnesty for millions of illegal aliens, weak border security, tax increases. VOTE NO for ALL Democrats this November.

      As a regular visitor of Florida, I am concerned about Florida’s well-being with Gillium as Gov. I see Florida turning into California with very high taxes, more homelessness, and more crime. You cannot have a Gov that is against law enforcement, that will cause major problems, and increase crime. I see this living in Maryland. We have a Mayor and a States Attorney that do not support the law enforcement and Baltimore’s crime rate speaks for its self. Businesses are going to start to leave the state because the taxes he wants to increase. I am I teacher, and obviously I do enjoy a raise but it’s counter productive if they increase taxes. Be careful Florida voters.

      Wow, a response this uninformed shows a lack of fact checking and critical thinking ability. NO politician wants to fling open the borders and invite drug lords and human traffickers in. Does that even sound credible when you say it out loud?

      The very existence of folks unable to pull strings of truth out of balls of lies is an argument for increasing spending on education.

      In fact every argument you make is an argument for increasing spending on education. Well educated people can create a forward thinking economy based on a future that is good for all concerned. They can think critically and meet their own basic needs. Once a person’s basic needs are met, they are free to live to a set of morals.

      All of the things conservatives prefer to spend their money on suffer when education suffers as well. One must be educated to design the most devastating weapons of war or to operate them. On must be educated to be a first responder.

    A totally outsiders view here – but common sense would tell me with all of the assistance that Floridians will need to recover from the wrath of hurricane Michael – DeSantis is a sure bet for the best possible aid package. Gillum is openly hostile to the current administration – as is Nelson, that doesn’t bode well for negotiating the aid that Floridians will most certainly need. Not my vote – but if it was – it wouldn’t even be a question. Just my two cents!

    Let’s hope that the republicans do the same as the election. Keep quiet, and show up at the polls. We have witnessed first hand what the liberals are trying to do. The people are ready for a change. Mr Gilliam is not our guy. His track record speaks for itself. Please go vote

    “Tee” He LOST the primary in Tallahassee, the city he is mayor of. What does that tell you? These points that people are making are not lies, it’s a fact that he wants to abolish ice, raise taxes on businesses, start taxing Floridians, open the borders, re-settling “refugees”….he said ” you are welcome in Florida no matter where you come from…….Please do not call people liars when you are not even aware of what this man is going to do to our state.

    I have a problem with people who vote for the guy that going to take from other to give to them so that they don’t have to worked harder to provide for themselves, meaning free healthcare, free college, and free housing, those are things that are the individual responsibility that is not the government job to provide for you by taking from other by force.

    The number of socialist in Florida is astonishing. Higher taxes! Socialist health care, open borders, abolishing ICE. Cuban refugees know what a failed marxist ideology generates. Christians, get the vote out. Independents, duty, honor, country. Keep Florida strong and economically thriving. Gollum is a graduate of Soros school for revolution and destruction of rule of law
