in Uncategorized by

Democrat Frank Bruno and Republican Dorothy Hukill are locked into a dead heat for Senate District 68.

According to a new survey conducted by St. Pete Polls, Hukill is at 41.9% in the polls, with Bruno all but tied at 41.0%.

Newly drawn, District 8’s Republican and Democratic registrations were only 1 point apart — 38 percent Democrat and 37 percent Republican, with 25 percent of the voters without a party or signed up with a third party.

The poll of likely voters was conducted Sept. 1 through Sept. 3.

As for the veracity of St. Pete Polls data, I wrote this analysis about their numbers vs. actual results and determined, “Its results in the most important races outweigh its askew numbers in down-ballot campaigns. Moreover, the residents and voters involved in these races should be grateful for St. Pete Polls’ contribution to the public debate.”
