Miami– A new poll released this Friday shows Debbie Mucarsel-Powell, the Democratic candidate for Florida’s 26th Congressional District, is up by two points in her race against Republican incumbent Carlos Curbelo. It’s the fourth recent poll to show her closing the gap on her opponent.
According to Roll Call reporter Simone Pathe, who first obtained a copy of the survey:
“Mucarsel-Powell led the incumbent 50 percent to 48 percent in the poll conducted for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee’s independent expenditure arm. GBA Strategies surveyed 500 likely voters between Sept. 27 and Oct. 1. The poll had a margin of error of plus or minus 4.4 percentage points.”
Mucarsel-Powell has been aggressively working to show the clear contrast between herself and Curbelo. The result? Four consecutive polls showing Debbie gaining ground against her opponent a month before the election.
- On Wednesday, the Cook Political Report shifted the race for Florida’s 26th District from Lean Republican to Toss-Up;
- Mucarsel-Powell led Curbelo by one point, 49-48, in a survey of 500 likely voters released this week by Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research;
- A similar survey by Public Policy Polling (PPP) showed Mucarsel-Powell leading Curbelo by one point, 45-44;
