Progressive group polling finds Ron DeSantis may be in a closer race than expected

The incumbent sits at less than 50% in one new poll.

A poll released by Florida progressive groups suggest Gov. Ron DeSantis may face more resistance to re-election than expected.

Survey results released by Progress Florida and Florida Watch show 48% of registered voters intend to vote for DeSantis for re-election. Meanwhile, about 43% of voters intend to vote for the Democratic challenger, whether that is U.S. Rep. Charlie Crist or Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried.

The Democratic nominee will be chosen in an Aug. 23 Democratic Primary, and pollsters did not release any results comparing which major candidate would fare better
