Lynn appears to have momentum on his side.

Republican Anna Paulina Luna and Democrat Eric Lynn are locked in a tie for Florida’s 13th Congressional District, according to polling by David Binder Research released Monday.

Both candidates garnered 47% support in the survey of voters in the open district, with 42% of voters each indicating their voting choice was definitive, 4% of each’s supporters saying they may yet change their minds and 1% each saying they were leaning toward their preferred candidate.

While no one has a lead in the latest poll and results are clearly within the margin of error, trends show good news for Lynn as he battles in what is now, following redistricting a red district. Lynn has gained 2 percentage points since August, when he posted just 45% support in a survey by the same pollster. Meanwhile, Luna lost some support, going from 48% support in August to 47% this month.

Lynn hasn’t led Luna since the David Binder Research poll in June, when he claimed 45% support to her 43%, though both candidates’ have improved among decided or leaning voters since then.

Lynn also appears to have momentum among independents, with 48% backing compared to Luna’s 43%. Lynn is running on a moderate platform, while Luna has stuck to hard conservative, pro-former President Donald Trump messaging.

Partisan voters, in the latest poll, are also showing stronger support for Lynn than Luna, with 83% of Democrats backing him compared to 81% of Republican voters supporting Luna.

The two are running to replace former U.S. Rep. Charlie Crist, who resigned from office earlier this year to focus on his bid for Governor.

Luna ran against Crist two years ago unsuccessfully, at a time when the district favored Democrats. Redistricting shifted district boundaries northward, giving the district a red lean.

It’s a key race for both parties as Democrats fight to keep the district blue in an election year that, by most analyses, is likely to flip control of the House to a Republican majority. Meanwhile, CD 13 is a key pick-up opportunity for Republicans as they pursue that goal.

The David Binder Research poll was conducted among 600 likely General Election voters October 4-6. It has a margin of error of +/- 4 percentage points.

    Apparently stupidity has spread across Pinellas more so than previous thought. How this batsh!t crazy woman is even polling at all says a lot about how low rent some of our neighbors are. I guess the gerrymandering is working in the Sh!tstain State. It’s sad because it used to be a somewhat progressive tone in Florida. It was a cool place to be and live then. Now it’s slowly becoming MAGA scumbagville complete with banning books and a big fat loudmouth for a governor who has no problem pimping his wife’s illness out as some sort of nod to his supposed leadership. Both he and this pathetic Lunatic lady are so paperthin that when challenged at all they whine and cry and act like they are the messengers of all that is holy and right and how dare they be challenged with facts and logic! Just stupid.

    Republican Anna Paulina Luna is a COWARD because she is afraid to debate Democrat Eric Lynn.

    Luna talks the talk, but Eric Lynn walks the walk.

    Luna is a profile in cowardice.

    Vote for courage, integrity & experience vote Eric Lynn.
