Florida Senate Polls 2022: What are the Advantages of Marco Rubio?
The latest Florida Senate Race Polls have Marco Rubio leading by 11% over Val Demings. Here are the advantages or the factors helping Marco Rubio:
- Florida has more likely been the Red State and the last time a Democrat won the senate race in Florida was back in the year 1998. Even this time, the latest survey shows that the registered Republican voters are more likely to vote for Marco Rubio. In the states of Ohio, PA, and Arizona, around 15% of the registered GOP voters voted for Democrats but in Florida, the case may not be the same as per the latest poll.
- The latest survey found out the that favorability of Marco Rubio is higher than Val Demings in Florida. 42% of the respondents favored Marco Rubio while the favorability rate of Val Demings stood at 38%.
- The population of Florida is majorly dominated by White Americans and Hispanics. They together comprise 78% of the total population with White Americans being 51%. Rubio has the support of over half of the White American Population while Demings commands the support of 37%. Among the Hispanics, both have equal support.
- Black Voters have mainly supported the Democrats. But the population of Black voters in Florida is not as large as compared to other states. Florida has around 15% of the Black Voters and Demings has the support of 62% while Rubio has 18% support among the Black Voters.
- Urban Voters have been the vote base of Democrats but in Florida but Rubio and Demings have equal support of the Urban voters but the Rural voters back Rubio over Demings. Over 50% of the Rural Voters support the candidacy of Marco Rubio while Demings’ support stands at just 31%.
When all these demographic compositions are considered, GOP candidate Marco Rubio is better placed to be re-elected as the Senator once again. However, as noticed in Kansas where a pro-abortion candidate defeated the GOP candidate, such an outcome cannot be ignored. Val Demings is pro-abortion and she has been targeting Marco Rubio on this issue. Currently, Marco Rubio has an advantage but as we move closer to the election, we can expect more twists and turns to take place.
As of now, we consider the Florida Senate Race wide open with both Demings and Rubio having equal chances of being elected as Senator from Florida.
|What are the Chances of Marco Rubio Losing?|
Marco Rubio has been the Florida Senator since 2010 and most of the polls have predicted him to win again. However, the latest poll has given a lead to Val Demings. Here is why Rubio could lose the election
1. Immigration as an Issue: Rubio won 2016 by 8% points, and 7% came in from those who felt immigration was the most important issue. Immigration mattered to 10% of the voters in 2016. Immigration matters now to just 6% of the voters which theoretically cuts Rubio’s lead by 6% points. Rubio rode on top of the Trump campaign and won in 2016. He is struggling as the issues have changed.
2. Roe vs Wade: Most voters in Florida are uncomfortable with Roe vs Wade being overturned. In 2016, Rubio won the female vote by 4%, he trails by 10%. That 7% swing against Rubio is enough to make the election a close contest
Florida Senate Polls: Observations and Insights
- Marco Rubio won the 2016 election by an 8% margin, in the latest poll he is trailing Val Demings by 4%

Florida has been a swing state on the national level for years but Donald Trump made huge inroads with Latino voters and especially Cuban-American voters in Miami Date county, resulting in a 3.5-point win, the largest margin of victory in Florida since 2004 by any presidential candidate.
Marco Rubio, a Cuban-American Republican who first won the election in the red wave of 2010, easily held on in 2016 after running for president unsuccessfully, defeating Democrat Patrick Murphy by 7.3 points and vastly outperforming Trump in the state who only managed to defeat Clinton by 1 point. This makes him a huge favorite for the 2022 election.
