Val Demings has a chance of beating Marco Rubio in Florida, according to polls

Rep. Val Demings, the Democratic nominee for the Florida Senate, is closing in on incumbent Republican Sen. Marco Rubio, though Rubio still has a lead over his challenger in some polls.

A recent survey conducted by Progress Florida shared by political pollsa bipartisan group that conducts political polls, predictions and election night results, Demings and Rubio both presented 46 percent of the vote, with 8 percent of respondents still “undecided.”

However, other polls come to different conclusions and show that Rubio is still a few percentage points ahead of Demings. According to FiveThirtyEight’s most recent Oct. 3 poll, Rubio led with 47.8 percent of the vote versus Deming’s 43.5 percent.

In a previous FiveThirtyEight poll dated Aug. 11, Demings had just 39.3 percent of the vote versus Rubio’s 47.5 percent.

Demings, the former Orlando Police Department chief who has served as Florida’s 10th congressional district representative since 2017, has broadened her support base in recent months and she is now in a stronger position to topple her rival than many expected.

Demings, who introduced herself as “the boss” during the campaign, has the momentum in this race, said Devon Cruz, Demings’ campaign spokesman news week.

“Chief Demings is stepping in to represent all Floridians while Marco Rubio continues to let them down at every opportunity,” Cruz said. “Floridians know this race is between a cop on the street and a career politician who doesn’t show up for work. Floridians want a leader in the United States Senate who fights for lower costs, less crime and protection of their constitutional rights. Chief Demings will be that senator.”

While Demings drew on her law enforcement career during the campaign, Rubio, on the other hand, made a direct connection between Demings and President Joe Biden, writing on Twitter that the Democratic nominee was “just another America’s fault.” first stamp.”

Elizabeth Gregory, a spokeswoman for Rubio, was asked to comment on the latest polls news week about Demings being a candidate who will follow Biden’s agenda.

“This election is a choice between Marco’s proven record of delivering results for Florida and Congressman Val Deming’s record of voting with Nancy Pelosi and for Joe Biden’s agenda, 100 percent of the time for Pelosi’s failed agenda. Given this election, we’re more than confident that we’ll win,” said Gregory news week.

Rubio is seeking his third six-year term in the Senate in November. If Demings wins the November election, she would become the first black woman senator from Florida. Val Demings has a chance of beating Marco Rubio in Florida, according to polls
