Statewide races vs. Inweekly polls

In governor’s race, the Inweekly/Political Matrix poll predicted the margin of victory for Congressman Ron DeSantis over Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam – 20 percent.

The Democratic primary had Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum mount a two-week surge that put him over  Gwen Graham. On Aug. 14, the Inweekly/Political Matrix poll had Graham ahead with 26 percent. Philip Levine had 16 percent, Gillum 15 percent, Jeff Greene 10 percent and Chris King 9 percent. We had 24 percent uncertain.

Gillum picked up 19 percentage points, Graham only 5 points and Levine 4 points.  Greene held his 10 percent and King dropped 7 points.

In Republican primary for Attorney General, the Inweekly/Political Matrix poll had Ashely Moody slightly ahead of Pensacola State Rep. Frank White, while most polls had White in the lead.  Our Aug. 14 poll had 37 percent of the likely GOP voters uncertain.  Moody picked up 25 percent of those votes to defeat White, 57-43.
