Election Day is fast upon us (it's tomorrow!), and according to two new polls released Monday, the Democratic candidates in Florida’s two most high profile races continue to hold their leads.
The latest NBC News / Marist poll finds Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum holding onto a slight lead, 50 to 46 percent, over GOP candidate and former U.S. Rep. Ron DeSantis.
In the race for U.S. Senate, incumbent Bill Nelson also has a 50 to 46 percent lead over current Florida Governor and GOP candidate Rick Scott.
Forty-five percent of those surveyed say they have already cast their ballots. More than 4.8 million people took advantage of early voting in the Sunshine State during the two-week period either in person or by mail.=.
Both Democratic candidates hold an edge in favorability among voters (Gillum 48 percent favorable to 40 percent unfavorable with Nelson at 45 percent to 42 percent) while DeSantis and Scott each have unfavorable ratings higher among those surveyed (43 percent to 45 percent for DeSantis and 42 percent to 50 percent for Scott).
The numbers go along with President Donald Trump’s favorability in the state dropping from 46 percent to 44 percent since September’s survey.
