The latest polls show Republican Sen. Marco Rubio with a solid lead over Democrat Rep. Val Demings in Florida's senate race.

Polls since September have consistently shown Rubio in the lead. The last two polls from Data for Progress and the University of North Florida show Rubio leading by seven and 11 points, respectively. Three earlier polls show him maintaining an average lead on Demings by 6.3%.

Rubio won by 8% in his senatorial race against Democrat Patrick Murphy in 2016, when he ran for his second term after a failed presidential campaign.

It was a three-way race in 2010 when he first ran for the Senate. Votes were split between Rubio, then-Independent Charlie Crist, and Democrat Kendrick B. Meek. Crist and Meek garnered 29.7% and 20.2%, respectively, while Rubio cruised to victory with 48.9% of the vote.

In 2022, Rubio is comfortably leading by an average of 7.4%.

The RealClearPolitics average has Rubio at 49.6%. He hasn't crossed the 50% threshold yet and 8.2% of voters are still undecided.

Demings currently sits at an average of 42.2% despite her aggressive campaigning.

The Federal Election Commission shows that Demings has raised nearly $20 million more for her campaign than Rubio, who has at $44.5 million.

The difference is that Rubio has more money available for the final weeks before the election as his campaign has spent less in comparison to his rival's aggressive campaign.

Of the $44.5 million he's raised, Rubio has spent just over $35 million, leaving him with $9 million remaining.

Demings has spent $59.6 million so far of the $65.5 million she has raised, leaving approximately $6 million for the remaining days before the election.
