Public Policy Polling’s new Florida Senate poll finds that the race is pretty much undefined, with the candidates largely unknown and “undecided” leading the primaries on both the Democratic and Republican sides.
On the GOP side none of the three major hopefuls who have declared their candidacies so far have even 40 percent name recognition. David Jolly and Ron DeSantis each have 37 percent name recognition, and for Carlos Lopez-Cantera it’s even lower at 31 percent. Fifty-two percent of voters say they’re undecided about who they’d want their candidate to be given those choices, with Jolly at 18 percent, DeSantis at 15 percent, and Lopez-Cantera at 14 percent.
It’s going to be a while before this race really develops and there’s definitely still room in the field for others to join.
