Florida’s Republican Senator Marco Rubio is winning, winning, winning, and we are not surprised.
“Sen. Marco Rubio’s lead over Rep. Val Demings has increased as the election draws closer,” a UNF Public Opinion Research Lab survey reported.
Rubio now holds a double-digit lead over his democrat opponent Val Demings.
“The survey, released Wednesday, showed Rubio expanding his lead against Demings, leading by 11 percentage points, or 54 percent to 43 percent. His 11-point lead is well outside the survey’s +/- 4.7 percent margin of error, and just three percent said they remained unsure or refused to answer,” reported Breitbart on the poll.
DeSantis (R-inc) 55% (+14)
Crist (D) 41%
Marco Rubio (R-Inc) 54% (+11)
Val Demings (D) 43%

“UNF political science professor and Public Opinion Research Lab faculty director Dr. Michael Binder noted that it ‘will likely take an exceptionally weak Republican candidate for Democrats to win statewide,’ adding that ‘Rubio is not a weak candidate,'” reported Breitbart.
“Rubio went head to head with Demings during a debate last week, highlighting Demings’ extreme positions on a variety of issues — from abortion to election integrity,” reported Breitbart.
Rubio identified himself as “100 percent pro-life.”
“Demings failed to explain when, exactly, she believes abortion should be illegal, vaguely pointing to the ‘point of viability’ but repeatedly refusing to explain when she believes that is,” Breitbart reported.
“The extremist on abortion in this campaign is Congresswoman Demings. She supports no restrictions, no limitations of any kind. … She’s against the four-month ban. She voted against a five-month ban. She supports taxpayer-funded abortion on demand for any reason at any time, up until the moment of birth. That’s what she supports.”
Rubio also confronted Demings after the Democrat accused him of supporting voter suppression.
“In Florida, you can now vote by mail for any reason. You can vote, for example, ten days before the election. You can vote on Election Day. In Georgia, which they claim to be the place that was suppressing all the votes, you had record African American voter turnout,” Rubio said.
“You have to ask for ID to get into her [Demings’] neighborhood where she lives and you have every right to have that, but you can’t ask for it when they vote?” Rubio later asked.
