Mason-Dixon Polling Director Brad Coker said typically more GOP Voters Vote in Midterms than D's.

That's suggesting to me that all the other Polls who had Gillum between 3-6 Points have been oversampling Democrats.

Certainly interesting. Tilt D, but this (just like the Senate race) isnít over yet.

No Senate numbers?

Yeah, Im pretty sure every single pollster that has polled the state has been wrong, while Mason has been correct. Really plausible.

Just sounds like they admitted to oversampling Rs.

Not necessarily. Rasmussen's poll that showed Gillum+6 had a 35R - 31D sample. That's just one example too.

Why does Florida always have to be so weird. Nelson finally starts pulling ahead, yet Gillum ends up in a tighter race. I don't know if I buy it. But then again, this is Florida that we're talking about.

Gillum's been riding a month of good press following a shock win and a whooooooooole lot of gross unforced errors by his opponent. As the campaign gets down to the nitty-gritty, it was always likely to narrow. I'd say this is still tilt/lean D right now, but like the Senate race it'll come down to turnout.

So I guess we are back to the "Florida is tough to poll" stage?

What's Mason-Dixon's overall performance in Florida?

I seemed to recall that they tend to have a pretty decent record in polling Florida....

If so, then....

I'm not entirely sure it's actually tightening. We haven't had a Mason-Dixon poll of this race yet, so there is nothing to compare to it. And the St Pete poll we had today - like I posted, there was no substantial change from their last poll. It went down 1 point, which is hardly anything.

Meanwhile, PPP polled this in late August and got D+5, and now it's D+4. Cherry Communications had D+4 in early September and that expanded to D+6 a week ago. If anything, the race hasn't really changed. It's just gotten some new polls that may overestimate Republicans a bit. I would wait for some of the better-quality pollsters who already recently polled the race (like Marist) to release more polls before drawing conclusions.

(or maybe it has changed, but it's impossible to know that for sure right now)

Can we please stop using the term "oversample" to refer to a sample that is too heavy on a specific demographic? "Oversampling" refers to a deliberate - any very beneficial - methodological choice.

I'd like to see their Senate numbers. Still, as I said, this is perfectly consistent with Gillum having a mid-single-digit lead.

The polls show this race tightening. As of now it's hard to say if it's just random noise, Gillum's post primary bounce deflating, the Kavanaugh stuff boosting the GOP, DeSantis's gaffes finally falling into the background, or some combination of the above. Time will tell I guess.

Anyway, I think Atlas overcorrected and went from underestimating Dem chances here to overestimating them, lol. Let's be honest with ourselves here. As bad as DeSantis is, the GOP is not going to just lay back and let a liberal black man become governor of Florida without a fight.

I think that is well put. Florida is too polerized and Gillum are implementing the same Strategy that Clinton did in 2016 by running up the margin in the big Democratic Counties while abandoning rual Voters. Gillum is going to get "killed" in the Exurbs around Tampa/St. Pete just like Trump did with Hillary.

2006 was a good year for D's yet the FL Exit Poll showed more Republicans voted than Democrats.

I call what Q-Pac and Marist are doing is absolutely hyperbolic by suggesting that the Florida Electorate in a MidTerm will be 4-5 Points more Democratic. That is just crap big time.

Unless the D's have fixed their Turnout Problem they had in 2010 & 2014 a lot of the Races will be a lot tighter and R's may actually win some.

Florida has only had two close statewide elections from 2000-2018. The two being Rick Scott's campaigns. Usually, Dems and Reps win FL with large margins.


Anyway, it really is Atlas to take 1 poll and treating it as gospel. Seriously, we have a multitude of polls and averages to work off of here, and now people are overanalyzing one poll that gives a lackluster result. That is appropriate for ND and house races, not for FL.

Mason-dixon is one of the pollsters that had romney leading by big margins in the final week in FL. To call them more credible than other pollsters in the state would be nonsense.

DeSantis also gave Gillum pretty much a free pass in the month of September with no Attack Ads, etc.

Gillum peaked to early.
