Florida Democrats Just Soiled the Bed

The latest Suffolk University/USA Today Network poll conducted in Florida is bad news for Florida Democrats.

Remember, Republicans have already surpassed Democrats in voter registrations. On Election Day, Republicans could have a 200,000 voter registrati0n advantage.

Now the Suffolk poll shows that President Biden’s approval ratings are in the dumps.

According to the poll released Tuesday, Biden's overall approval rating stands at 39%, with 53% disapproving of his job performance, mirroring other national surveys conducted in the last few weeks. Voters cited Biden's handling of the economy as the biggest reason for his overall disapproval rate.

What’s worse for Democrats is that Senator Marco Rubio (R) is leading Rep. Val Demings (D) 47-40% in the poll.

It gets worse.

In a head-to-head 2024 match-up between Gov. Ron DeSantis and President Biden, Gov. DeSantis has a 52% to 44% advantage. READ MORE
