Florida Politics, Oct. 25, 2018: “The internal poll, conducted by 1892 and obtained by Florida Politics, shows DeSantis with a 1-point lead over Gillum, 47-46 percent… The 1892 poll paints a more optimistic picture for DeSantis than most public polls in the runup to Election Day. According to the RealClearPolitics polling average of the race, Gillum currently has a 5.8 percentage point lead. That average does include a couple outliers, however, including a CNN poll that showed Gillum up 12 points.”
