“The Florida Chamber Political Operations team regularly analyzes ChamberHub, the Florida Chamber’s voter file, to recognize trends in Florida’s changing electorate.
“Florida’s economics, demographics and politics continue changing,” said Florida Chamber President & CEO Mark Wilson. “This new Florida Chamber poll shows likely Florida voters are more confident in Florida than in the nation. With the 2022 General Election two weeks away, it is essential to elect pro-jobs candidates to make sure the right things keep happening in Florida as we grow from the 16th to the 10th largest global economy by 2030.”
