Over the past six weeks, several polls have been conducted of the toss-up Sunshine State Senate race, and now we see another where the two candidates are virtually tied. Public Policy Polling, surveying for the EDGE Communications group (6/18-19; 1,308 FL registered voters; automated), finds Sen. Bill Nelson (D), leading Gov. Rick Scott (R), 48-46%. The two most recent polls have given Gov. Scott a similarly small lead. The PPP data also finds each man’s favorability index about even, too. Sen. Nelson’s ratio is 42:41% positive to negative, while Gov. Scott is slightly upside down at 44:46%.
