Florida Senate Race 2022 Polls : As per the latest polls, Marco Rubio is ahead of his potential Democratic contenders

Latest Polls

The United States Florida Senate Election will be held on November 8th, 2022 to elect a member to the United States to represent the state of Florida. Both the senatorial seats of the state of Florida are currently held by Republicans. The one going to election next year is the one held by incumbent Marco Rubio.

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 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 favourite running in 2022 and both Cook Political Report and Sabato’s Crystal Ball have him favored giving him “Lean R” and “Likely R” ratings respectively
