The Florida Senate race, one of the top campaigns in the country, has been bouncing back and forth between three-term incumbent Bill Nelson (D) and Gov. Rick Scott (R). Though the Sunshine State primary isn’t until August 28th, it is a foregone conclusion that both men will advance to the general election.
A new Florida Atlantic University survey was just released (7/20-21; 800 FL registered voters) and it finds Gov. Scott leading Sen. Nelson, 44-40%, which, interestingly, is the same result they found from their May statewide poll. Gov. Scott also led substantially on job approval ratings in the current poll. According to the data, by a ratio of 50:32%, voters approve of the Governor’s job performance. Conversely, Sen. Nelson’s approval ratio is much lower at 37:32%.
