I mean... the polling in Kansas was nowhere near what turned out to be. (https://www.kansascity.com/news/politics-government/article263653748.html "Of the more than 1,500 Kansans surveyed earlier this week 47% said they planned to vote yes on the amendment, while 43% said they planned to vote no and 10% were undecided." It actually won by 58.8%.)

Younger voters are really hard for pollsters to reach, given that they only have cell phones and don't respond to unknown callers or texters much. So, there's hope that the actual vote will skew even more Democratic.

No kidding, if by some chance their comes a time after the 2022 where we can all suck eachother's dicks it most certainly won't be until a few days after the election, until then...everyone cool it.

That's a little surprising, but good to see.
 
2022-08-16 10:44:47 AM  
Great, but does anyone seriously think DeSantis and his new "voter fraud" goon squad will allow a Dem to win any statewide office? Not bloody likely!

Especially if the FL legislature decides to yeet the actual election results and install whoever they want.

You know, like the GOP keeps saying they will do, all over the country.

slightly unrelated, but even if the Democrats lose the House, I hope Qevin loses his seat and is denied the speakership entirely.

It would be a fitting end to a spineless moron

I'm in Simple Kevin's district. As far as I can tell, nobody is even running against him. He's staying ☹

She's been gaining... I was surprised a couple weeks ago when she pulled dead even, but the momentum seems to be continuing.  Just hope it holds up through November.

I'd love to see Rubio sent packing

The 10% didn't want to say that they were voting NO so they said that they were undecided. So...There's that.

Certainly little Marco will post an appropriate Bible quote for this development.

This is good news. I gave Demings money a while back, but held off because for the longest time she was always 2% behind. I put my money towards other races. I may have to reconsider.

I remember when polls used to be remarkably accurate predictors of election outcomes, but those days are LONG gone. As frustrating as it may be, we're all better off ignoring them.

I will hope for the best and root for Demmings, and I'm generally optimistic about the Democrats this election, but I've long since given up optimism over Florida elections.
 
2022-08-16 12:25:05 PM  
Pollsters found that DeSantis had a 50 percent to 43 percent lead over Fried and a 50 percent to 42 percent lead over Crist. This is notable especially since the entire poll was nearly evenly broken by party affiliation, with 36 percent Republicans answering as opposed to 35 percent who were Democrats. Translation: If you expect a red wave Republican year, then DeSantis' lead is likely even larger.
 
2022-08-16 12:25:21 PM  
It would be even more funny if she was taller than him.
 
2022-08-16 12:25:37 PM  
I'm not going to hold my breath over anything Florida related. The electorate there has proven that it will, knowingly and with full intent, repeatedly vote for and install leaders of convicted criminal organizations who defrauded them for billions (Scott) and open fascists (Trump, Desantis) over any alternative.

I mean, it'd be great if something changed, but Florida Man's electoral track record is about what one would expect.

hard to believe rubio could be in trouble

he should tweet some bible verses or complain about his job more

I voted for her two days ago. EVERY single candidate I voted for was a WOMAN and a Democrat, in the state and national campaigns. I did vote for the incumbent school board members who were sane, as opposed to the 3 GQP candidates that have been leveling "cover-up" and "abuse" accusations at current school board which have overseen one of the best school systems in the state.

I'm in beat red Florida panhandle, which is certifiably insane.

I'm hoping that Nikki Fried can beat former republican and professional candidate, Charlie Crist.

I'm not. Democrats are a lot more motivated compared  to previous midterm elections.

So if only old coot reply to polls, does this mean that she is beating little Marco in the old coot demographic?

Night Train to Wakanda: Polls are broken.
Stop using them.


If you don't understand the purpose of polling, sure.

Polls tell you a snapshot in time what the electorate is thinking on an issue/person. A single poll is useless. A collection of polls over a time period can show a trend in how the population is changing or not changing in their thoughts on a topic/person.

This poll is another in a series showing a decline in support of Rubio by Floridians. It doesn't mean he's going to lose, it doesn't tell you the margin in which he will win or lose. It's statistics, not certainty.

But if you have several polls in a row taken of Florida voters and they all start showing declines in support for Rubio as compared to the last time the same poll was taken, you can safely assume that support for Rubio is declining in a noticeable rate in Florida. That may very well translate into him losing his seat in November, should the polls continue to indicate that going into election day.

but nothing is certain, and if you go into this thinking polls tell you that Rubio is going to lose 60-40, you need to go back and relearn basic statistics again.

I'm 35 and have been contacted half a dozen times by pollsters. However, I live in Texas and while the data geek in me wants to help provide a more representative sample of the population, the cynic in me realizes that Texas is only 3 or 4 steps away from arresting me for my answers, so I haven't been responding.

/I know, it's by design

Do latinos in FL who are paranoid about authorities respond to polls?

Because that demo has not gone well for Ds in FL
