@realDonaldTrump What you should understand is that Pinellas' population and demographics are extrordinarily stable, esp. when compared to other counties in Florida.
The voters who voted in 2016 are the people who are being polled now.
@realDonaldTrump Pinellas is as bipartisan as it gets: A GOP U.S. Rep in the northern part of the county, a Democrat in the south part. GOP slightly dominates legislative delegation, but biggest city is led by a Democrat. County Commission is 4-3 Democrat, but countywide officials are Republican.
I spent a lot of time this past week talking to upper echelon of @realDonaldTrump’s team in Florida.
1. They’re buoyed by the data they see; they’re looking at models from three sources and they say numbers are encouraging.
2. There is enormous relief within Trump Florida team that the principal is back on the campaign trail. They say this is their number one advantage. They say their is a direct link with a Trump swing through Florida and poll movements.
I feel like if I don't get this all out there now, I might get scooped again, as I was here that @GovRonDeSantis administration is likely to rescind ALL of Rick Scott's last minute, Senate-confirmable appointments.
The bad blood (and that's a bit of an overstatement) between the outgoing and incoming governor began post-election when it was clear that Rick Scott was headed to a recount (of some sort) and Ron DeSantis wasn't.
Up until that point Rick Scott and Ron DeSantis were on friendly terms. Not best buds, but certainly more amicable to each other than they are now.
But Scott did not like facing a recount and really did not like that DeSantis was pivoting to transition.
