Good news for Republicans. Good news for Democrats. Bad news for Republicans. Bad news for Democrats.

Good News for Democrats

The latest Suffolk University poll has Democrats Andrew Gillum and Bill Nelson up by a hair over their respective Republican opponents, Rick Scott and Ron DeSantis.

Bad News for Democrats

They are barely up, hanging by a thread, if you would. Blue wave?

With 8 percent of those polled in the senate being undecided, and another 19 percent not sure of who they would vote in as governor, it looks as if these two races could be decided well after the polls close in the panhandle of the state.

By the numbers:

Senate Race

45%-Nelson

43%-Scott

10%-Undecided

+/- 4.4 percentage (margin of error)

Governor’s Race

45%-Andrew Gillum

44%-Ron DeSantis

8%-Undecided

Gillum led DeSantis among women (50 percent to 38 percent), young voters (50 percent to 34 percent), black voters (81 percent to 4 percent), and Hispanic voters (52 percent to 36 percent). DeSantis led among men (51 percent to 40 percent), older voters (61 percent to 31 percent), and white voters (53 percent to 37 percent). In the last seven days, both will vie for the votes of independents, where the undecided number is a significantly high 23 percent. Though 82 percent of voters said their minds are made up, just 64 percent of independents are sure, while 17 percent said they could change their mind, and 19 percent were undecided.-Suffolk University
