Pretty amazing isnt it?

Rep. Ron DeSantis has opened up a 12-point lead in Florida’s Republican race for governor, according to a new independent poll that indicates President Donald Trump is the key to his success.

DeSantis has built his campaign around the support of Trump, who endorsed the congressman in December and then followed up with another endorsement in June, thereby slighting the establishment front-runner, Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam, who had dissed Trump on the campaign trail in 2016. DeSantis has featured the Trump endorsement in his mail and TV ads, which he began running last month.

Now that the ads have sunk in, DeSantis leads Putnam 42 percent to 30 percent, said Tony Fabrizio, a top Republican pollster. “It’s clear this is all about Trump and this is bad for Adam Putnam,” Fabrizio told POLITICO. “Absentee ballots start dropping, when? In eight days. Putnam is down by 12 points. What can he do to change that dynamic?”

Even the dems in my state are running on Trump's coattails.
