Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has a comfortable 14 point lead over Democrat challenger Charlie Crist, according to a new poll.
Many people would suggest that his lead is probably even higher than that. DeSantis is one of the most popular governors in the country.
Either way, it looks like Charlie Crist is going to have to look for a new line of work in two weeks.

Poll: Ron DeSantis Holds 14-Point Lead over Democrat Charlie Crist
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) holds a double-digit lead over Democrat challenger Rep. Charlie Crist (D-FL), a recent UNF Public Opinion Research Lab survey found.
The survey found DeSantis with a comfortable lead over his challenger, ahead by 14 percentage points, or 55 percent to the Democrat’s 41 percent. Just four percent said they were undecided or refused to offer an answer — not enough to alter the course of DeSantis’s lead.
The survey was taken October 17 through October 24, the latter of which stood on the first and only debate between the two, among 622 likely voters. It has a +/- 4.7 percent margin of error:
This poll has increased the lead DeSantis has maintained in RealClearPolitics’ average of polls, moving it from ten percent to 11.2 percent over the last two days.
The two faced off in their first and only debate ahead of Election Day on Monday night, where Crist attempted to distract from the issues by baselessly asserting that DeSantis is only eyeing a presidential bid.
See the numbers below:
DeSantis (R-inc) 55% (+14)
Crist (D) 41%
Marco Rubio (R-Inc) 54% (+11)
Val Demings (D) 43%

Nothing can be taken for granted, but DeSantis is probably going to cruise to another win.
