It'd be cool if Florida voted for a senator who does something besides grandstand.

/Most of the rest of the states, too, for that matter.

10% wiggle room.

I hate rooting for a cop, but damn....it would be nice to get rid of Rubio.

If she actually beat him, I might have to drink an entire bottle of Blanton's.

The Hub conducted the poll with Clarity Campaigns using our panel of Florida registered voters fromJuly 26-31, 2022. The sample is n=2,244 registered voters and has been weighted to reflect a likelymidterm electorate in terms of party registration (37% D / 22% NPA or OTH / 41% R), race (68% W / 13%B / 16% H), and geography.

That's a larger sample size than I was expecting.

And take Death Sentence with him.

Neither man would then be considered electable in 2024, since they lost.

Looks like Little Marco is going to have to up his nazi cred if he wants republiKlan voters to carry water for him.
 
2022-08-08 2:37:53 PM  
That would be amazing. Dems could have 54 or 55 Senate seats at this rate.
 
2022-08-08 2:38:16 PM  
DeathSantis isn't letting any of these people lose no matter how many more people vote for their Democratic opponents.

Pay attention people: If a Republican loses the election was stolen, and DeathSantis will not let that stand.
 
2022-08-08 2:41:05 PM  
The Democrats have historically strong headwinds (party in power, inflation).

Florida has been slipping away from the Democrats:
In 2018, with major tailwinds, incumbent Democrat Bill Nelson lost his Senate seat to Rick Scott, and Ron DeathSentence narrowly beat out Gillum before all the scandals came out.
In 2020, Trump won Florida by a bigger margin than he did in 2016

While anything is possible, let's just say I'm not holding my breath that Lil' Marco loses in November
 
2022-08-08 2:41:10 PM  
I'm generally optimistic about electoral politics.

I've given up on Florida. It always looks close, then the Rs always win because of Spanish-language fake news on radio broadcasts or other such nonsense.

Think she could recruit Chris Christie to come in and torpedo Rubio again at a debate?

It should be easy and fun to dunk on Rubio.  This feels a bit forced.  not sure she's quite got it.

Democrats before the Dobbs ruling:
" At the end of the day, you can ignore these bozos.  There is no way they can game the system to take away our rights.  No need to get worked up, they'll either come around to our way of thinking or tire themselves out."

On the other hand what kind of Florida will take his place?
 
2022-08-08 2:44:16 PM  
Oh boy. A poll from two super progressive groups finds that their preferred candidate is suddenly competitive!

While Rubio is a douchebag and I'd love it if he got turfed from Florida, let me know when this result is replicated by a major, reputable, polling agency.

There are plenty of retirees in Florida who aren't eligible for Medicare yet and therefore didn't get that insulin cap. Plenty of retirees that depend on Social Security and Medicare that Marco wants to take away. Dems need to hammer on that. Add in the anti-gay agenda in ads in Miami and the lack of real teachers in schools, and you could possibly get a W there.

And yes, Trump won by a decent margin, but we all know the Covid death count for Florida is off. Let's see how things pan out with that.
 
2022-08-08 2:49:08 PM  
Compared to 1 Aug. (538), it looks like most of the shift has been independents moving from Marco to nope.
 
2022-08-08 2:49:43 PM  
Florida's elections process has been corrupted and compromised since 2000.
 
2022-08-08 2:52:48 PM  
Well, if Dems manage a decent sweep this year they should do everything plausible to pass voting legislation first thing. Heck, if they get past 60 votes they should go to town on the GQP regarding that and jobs.

Something something eeyore something.

THIS is the kind of baseless FUD that serves no purpose other than to discourage democratic voters in Florida.

Fortunately, this being fark dot com, it accomplishes *nothing*.  But think twice if you're going to take that show on the road.

All they need is 52 senators.  They just need to dilute Machin and Sinema and kill or modify the filibuster.  They pass everything we can, and see how people like it in 24.

That is if we keep the house, which is still going to be a hard hill to climb, but the odds are improving (i think is was at 80/20 gop on 538 vs 87/13 gop two months ago

I didn't hear the "Start Sucking Each Other's Dicks" gun go off as it seems you did, but it is encouraging news.

It looks like Demings is picking up steam and narrowing the gap.

https://www.globenewswire.com/news-release/2022/07/13/2479036/0/en/POLL-Rubio-Leads-45-to-40-but-Demings-Makes-Major-Gains.html

A new poll from nonpartisan political action committee Center Street PAC (www.centerstreetpac.com) shows Florida Senator Marco Rubio leads Congresswoman Val Demings (R-FL) 45% to 40% among Florida voters, with 16% undecided. Among Likely Voters, Rubio leads 50% to 42%, with 8% undecided. However, momentum shifted significantly in favor of Demings, who saw a 13% improvement over March 2022.

Demings made major gains among unaffiliated voters. The survey showed 37% of unaffiliated voters preferred Deming to 29% for Rubio, with 33% undecided.

"Marco's still the favorite, but what's interesting is that he's sort of stalled out. He has a motivated base of voters locked in, but he's not making any new pitch to draw in new voters," says Center Street Co-Founder Jacob Perry. "The other issue is that there's no constituency that's particularly excited about Rubio. Democrats obviously don't like him, but neither do Trump Republicans. Val outraised him two to one, but also outspent him, and that spending really paid off in building her Awareness numbers."

The data shows Demings picked up huge swatches of Undecideds with her big media investments, and her strong Favorability suggests additional spending will pay similar dividends.


Rubio is also heavily relying on the NRSC (Rick Scott) for funds while Demings has cash to spend and is crushing him on ads.

The numbers- So far the Rubio ad buy doesn't come close to matching the nearly $6 million already spent by Demings' camp. Ad tracking firm AdImpact says the Rubio campaign and the NRSC are initially spending close to $300,000 in the West Palm Beach, Jacksonville and Tampa Bay markets. But now that Rubio has gone up on the air, he may stay there for the duration of the campaign.

Who's paying?- Demings' campaign - in anticipation of the new ad - pointed out that Rubio is relying on help from the NRSC after his campaign was significantly outraised by Demings in the second quarter of this year. "Marco Rubio has continued to lose momentum and enthusiasm, and he's had to call in Rick Scott and the NRSC in a desperate attempt to save his campaign," Demings spokesman Devon Cruz said in a statement.

The ask- Rubio himself went on Fox News on Monday night, where he acknowledged that "I need people's help" in raising money even though Republicans are expected to do well in Florida this election season. "Florida's trending in a very good direction," Rubio said. "But we can't get outspent and outraised three to one. Because we can't get our story out. If you think that - other than this network and a few others - we are going to be able to get our story out without having to pay for it, you're wrong."


Good news.  Hope she can build on it.

I hereby demand that I be given a Fark account: Florida is in play he said for the seventh time hopefully.


I am convinced that Florida rigs it's elections. In every single close race in the last 15 years, the Republican has always prevailed. It's the equivalent of flipping a coin a dozen times and getting heads each time. Could it happen? Sure. It's super unlikely though and every time the GOP beats the odds (and the exit polls incidentally) it just gets more suspicious.

Yeah but if they get 63 they can keep the filibuster intact for hilarity reasons and still steamroll the GQP agenda.

Miamian here.  Her tv ads are on ALL the time.  Someone's spending a lot of money on her campaign.  Basically just one ad pointing out his terrible attendance record.

It will feel so good to vote Little Marco out finally, he's an absolute shiatstain.
