Quinnipiac University surveyed the Florida electorate (2/23-26; 1,156 FL registered voters) and found consistent results with other firms who have recently asked ballot test questions for the impending US Senate contest between Sen. Bill Nelson (D) and Gov. Rick Scott (R). According to the results, Sen. Nelson claims a 46-42% advantage.
Gov. Scott has not announced a campaign for the Senate, but an unconnected political action committee has been running extensive media spots in an effort to promote the Governor’s agenda and accomplishments in office. The program appears to be working. The Q-Poll reports that Gov. Scott now records positive job approval numbers for the first time since the organization began polling in Florida. In this survey, Gov. Scott’s approval index ratio is 49:40%.
