After a poll revealed that Charlie Crist was significantly trailing Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis, the pollster dubbed him “defanged.”
Brad Coker tried to explain why the Democratic contender is failing after the Mason-Dixon Polling and Strategy poll revealed that Crist is trailing DeSantis by 11 percentage points.
After a poll revealed that Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis was far ahead of Charlie Crist in the race for governor of Florida, a pollster dubbed Crist “defanged.”
The study was carried out on September 28 when Hurricane Ian brought the Sunshine State to the attention of the nation. Coker stated that because Crist wasn’t in office during the catastrophic hurricane, he is at a disadvantage in an NBC News article.

“DeSantis will serve as Hurricane’s governor for the ensuing few weeks. Due to his entire absence from the news cycle and the fact that he has never overseen a hurricane, Crist cannot proudly refer to his accomplishments. Crist has thus been completely defanged “said Coker.
The comment received attention from NBC News, which used it as the lead sentence for a report about the poll titled “DeSantis leads defanged Crist after hurricane.”

NBC later stated that “Mason-poll Dixon’s results are basically unchanged from a prior study Coker performed in February,” despite the pollster acknowledging that Crist has a “disadvantage” because he wasn’t in office during the disaster.
The same pollster once advised voters to keep Nikki Fried in mind even though she was trounced by Crist in the August primary.
“Don’t write her off. I wouldn’t wager my home on it, but if I discovered $100 under a rock, I would wager it on Nikki Fried “Prior to the primaries, Coker spoke with CNN.
Charlie Crist defended Biden’s remark about “semi-fascists,” saying he was being “honest.”
The survey “shows DeSantis is garnering a bigger share of the Republican vote than Crist is of the Democratic vote, and the governor is receiving more Democratic voters when compared to the percentage of Republican voters supporting Crist,” according to NBC News.
After serving as governor of Florida from 2007 to 2011, Crist is hoping to take office again. The former Republican, who changed parties in 20122, was a Democratic representative for Florida’s 13th Congressional District, but he resigned from Congress after being nominated by his party for governor.
According to Fox News’ Power Rankings, a Republican victory in the Florida governor’s race is “probable.”
