With less than three weeks to go until Florida Republicans cast their ballots in the 2018 primary election, U.S. Congressman and gubernatorial candidate Ron DeSantis is holding a commanding 20-point lead against AG Commissioner Adam Putnam.
According to 600 Republicans surveyed in the latest North Star Opinion Research poll, DeSantis is crushing Putnam.
This polling results is good news for DeSantis, but the fat lady hasn’t begun to sing, and Putnam still has a lot of fight and money to expend. Early voting begins next week in many counties, and turn out should (as it always does) make the difference in any contented race.
As for the Democrats, former U.S. Rep. Gwen Graham leads her field of anti-Trump, anti-Rick Scott gubernatorial candidates.
