When the polls are averaged, Florida is coming up undecided in almost all seats for Congress and governor. This is in keeping with the state’s reputation as “purple,” swinging from red to blue depending on the election year.

Real Clear Politics, which takes an average of five polls, shows that five House seats throughout the state are in the “toss up” category — as opposed to leaning Republican or Democrat. No seats are leaning towards the Democrats, and only one, the 25th Congressional District currently held by Mario Diaz Balart, is leaning Republican. Likewise, the poll average puts the Florida U.S. Senate race in the toss-up category. The governor’s race is listed as leaning Republican, even though the primary candidate has not been chosen yet.
