With heavy advertising already beginning for the Florida general election even though the US Senate primary won’t occur until August 28th, a new poll again shows Florida Gov. Rick Scott (R) forging a small lead over veteran US Sen. Bill Nelson (D). Earlier in the week, we reported on a Morning Consult survey that posted the Governor to a slim 40-39% edge. Now, Cherry Communications, polling for the Florida Chamber of Commerce (5/25-6/4; 605 FL likely voters), released their latest results. Cherry confirms a small Scott lead, projecting him to a 48-45% advantage. Both results are within the polling margin of error. The Florida Senate race promises to attract national attention all the way to Election Day.
