Florida: New Poll Shows 7-Point Lead for Governor DeSantis Among Hispanic Voters Over Challenger Crist

As the 2022 election looms, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is leading challenger Charlie Crist by 7 points among Hispanic voters.

A Telemundo/LX News poll, conducted by Mason-Dixon Polling & Strategy  with registered Hispanic voters statewide, shows DeSantis leading Crist by 51% to 44% among Hispanic voters statewide.

According to Mason-Dixon:

This poll was conducted by Mason-Dixon Polling & Strategy, Inc. of Jacksonville, Florida from October 17 through October 20, 2022.

A total of 625 registered Hispanic voters statewide were interviewed live by telephone in Florida. All indicated they were likely to vote in the November general election.

Those interviewed were randomly selected from a phone-matched Florida voter registration list that included both land-line and cell phone numbers. Quotas were assigned to reflect Hispanic voter registration by county.

The margin for error, according to standards customarily used by statisticians, is no more than ± 4 percentage points. This means that there is a 95 percent probability that the “true” figure would fall within that range if all Hispanic voters in Florida were surveyed. The margin for error is higher for any subgroup, such as a gender or age grouping.

Further, the poll shows a stunning  72% of Cuban-Americans favor DeSantis over Crist.

Respondents were also asked specific questions about the governor’s leadership of the state including the relocation of migrants to Martha’s Vineyard.  The polled revealed 50% of respondents approved and 43% who disapproved of the decision.

When asked “Do you approve or disapprove of Governor DeSantis’s handling of the COVID pandemic,” 64% of the respondents approved of his performance.

DeSantis also received high marks for his handling of Hurricane Ian and recovery efforts with a 73% approval rating.

As DeSantis surges, the Crist campaign is crumbling. Just 3 weeks before Election Day, Crist campaign manager Austin Durrer departed the campaign.

Let the leftist meltdowns begin.
