First, in keeping with our commitment to sharing only the most reliable source information, it’s important for us to explain that The Veracity Report only considers polls that have been conducted by reputable polling agencies nationwide.

In keeping with that mission, we only consider polls that transparently share their methodologies, demographics, total number of respondents, whether they are “likely voters” or “registered voters”, and their respective margins of error. It is also our policy to attempt to use several polls as source information in all of our articles whenever possible (sometimes there is only one available), and also to directly link our readers to those respective polls so they can see for themselves that we have not manipulated the data or results of those polls in any way.

That being established, after perusing numerous last-minute polls for the temperature of the voting public in the state of Florida’s gubernatorial race, we found that incumbent governor Ron DeSantis has a convincing double-digit lead over his now Democratic challenger Charlie Crist, who once before briefly served as Florida’s governor, though as a Republican.

For this race, we evaluated 6 of the most recent polls which met our standards for transparency. In them, and beginning back on October 16th and running through until the most recent poll released today, this is what we found:

Back in the middle of October, according to this poll by Florida Atlantic University, DeSantis was polling over Crist 51% to 40%, for a total advantage of 11 points.

About a week later, on 10/24, the University of North Florida released this poll, which shows DeSantis up by 14 points, 55% to 41%.

At about the same time, on 10/23, Data for Progress conducted a poll that showed DeSantis winning by 12 points, 54% to 42%.

On Halloween, Florida State University and YouGov released this poll, showing DeSantis up by 10 points, 53% to 43%, and the next day, Spectrum News and Sienna College Polling, released this poll which shows DeSantis up by 12, 54% to 42%.

Lastly, on November 2nd, Fox 35 Orlando released this poll which shows DeSantis again up by 10, 53% to 43%.

Of course, it is impossible to predict the results of any election, however, by concentrating our efforts on only reputable polling agencies with transparent polling methodologies, we can and most often do see more accurate polling results.

As always, The Veracity Report will keep you up to date on these and all races as we get closer to the polls closing across the nation.
