A new Quinnipiac poll in Florida finds Sen. Bill Nelson (D) leading Gov. Rick Scott (R) in the U.S. Senate race, 52% to 46%.
Said pollster Peter Brown: “At this point, Sen. Nelson’s six-point overall lead is built on his large margin among independent voters, If that margin holds up, the senator will be difficult to beat. Moreover, Sen. Nelson’s 20-point advantage among women is twice Gov. Scott’s 10-point edge among men.”
He added: “Nelson is just better liked. Florida likely voters view him favorably by 10 percentage points, and see Gov. Scott unfavorably by five points.”
