Philip Levine Starts Behind Gwen Graham, Andrew Gillum
With Miami Beach Mayor Philip Levine expected to launch a gubernatorial bid on Wednesday, a new poll shows the South Florida Democrat has some work to do if he wants to win his party’s nomination in next year’s primary.
A plurality of Democrats--46 percent--are undecided while 31 percent of them support former U.S. Rep. Gwen Graham, D-Fla. Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum breaks double digits with 13 percent followed by Levine with 6 percent and Orlando businessman Chris King with 5 percent.
With attorney John Morgan continuing to leave the door open to a gubernatorial bid, the poll shows 32 percent of Florida Democrats see him favorably while 15 percent view him in an unfavorable light while a majority of those surveyed--53 percent--are not sure.
The poll of 1,796 Florida Democrats who voted in the 2014 and 2016 primaries was taken on Oct. 31 and had a margin of error of +/- 3 percent.
