Val Demings is 4 points ahead of Rubio in Florida

According to a new Florida poll, Rep. Val Demings is leading Sen. Marco Rubio 48%-44% in the state's US Senate contest.

Is it possible to dream for a Blue wave in Florida??

2. In ONE poll...with a 3.5% margin of error.

And in the same poll, DeSantis was ahead by 7, so, no wave.

39. would be a massive dem wave if dens stopped ignoring republican radio which, in fla, is huge

democrats give the cons such a huge advantage

take just the 20 x limbaugh stations that depend on 5 Fla unis to keep broadcasting sports on them.

FLORIDA 20 Florida 10, Florida St. 4 Miami 2, South Florida 2, Central Florida 2

as soon as dems howl about that, get attention to it, advertisers will flee. GOP Will freak out and spew "FREE SPEECH!!!" bullshit and make it worse.

if GOP would pay $1000/hr x 15 hrs/day x 5 days a week, 20 stations = $1.5/week FREE with assholes like dan bongino screaming about the 'liberal deep state' and all of them selling "global warming is a hoax" while waters rise in fla and hurricanes line up.

that $1.5M worth of free time every week is being spent to reelect every insane republican running and where the local blowhards can't kiss the asses of shits like egrets they can always use their megaphones to attack and lie about their opponents.

that's why republicans are even close, and we let 87 universities support and endorse 260+ of stations like that, all kissing trump's ass.

That's a HUGE part of the problem in this country! Plus...

IN ALL THE PRISONS, 24/7 is Fux Nooz pumping all those neo nazis full of their bullshit.
IN ALL THE MILITARY BASES 24/7 is Fux Nooz pumping all those soldiers full of LIES about the country they're trying to protect.

We need to form a new PAC to get this shit stopped.

Repubs own the companies that built the counting machines, they program the machines, then they tell us what the machines said and hand counts are illegal in Florida

10. Democratic candidates have led polls for years in Florida

and never end up winning any of these close elections.

Can't be a coincidence

If Marco loses to Demings his head will explode and that would be fun though

13. Years ago, I joined du to promote a book , richard charmon wrote

About how of the last 163 times that the opposite party won, even outside the margin of error, 159 of those times it was repubs winning and only 3 times was it democrats winning under those circumstances

Richard was a math geek and had calculated how unlikely it was that repubs nearly always benefited

I wish i had the skills to go back and find that post

I too hope val beats the odds

gerrymandered areas...if enough of them do...the gerrymander is destroyed...I saw it in Georgia when the Dem's gerrymander fell...yes we had them...but the GOP's are much worse.
