Yes. The second picture is definitely poison sumac. The other pictures really don't show the leaf pattern well enough to say for sure, even though they look very similar, and likely could be.

In the pictures I've seen, Poison Sumac does not have waxy leaves of an evergreen/tropical plant. Those really look like the leaves of a Brazilian Pepper Tree. Also while comparing the Poison Sumac to the plant in the Second Picture, take care to note the difference in the shape of the leaves at the leaf tips.

Brazilian Peppers are an incredibly tenacious species and their sprouts are extremely viable in the South Florida climate. They are considered an invasive species.

According to this map, poison sumac doesn't range as far south as Pinellas County.

I'm betting it's Brazilian Pepper.
