About half of Floridians likely to vote in the midterm elections are on board with Ron DeSantis’ migrant flights, according to a new poll that suggests the governor is cruising to reelection.
Conducted Oct. 10 – 13, the online poll of 685 likely voters found that 52% are voting for DeSantis, who with mail-voting underway has a 10-point lead over Charlie Crist (42% support). With Election Day looming on Nov. 8, only 6% of likely voters have yet to firmly decide on Crist or DeSantis, according to the poll.
The poll was conducted by RMG Research, led by conservative-leaning pollster and pundit Scott Rasmussen. It was commissioned by Tripp Scott, a law firm whose CEO, Ed Pozzuoli, is the former chairman of the Republican Party of Broward County.
Its margin of error is 3.7 percentage points.
