According to a newly released Clearview Research poll (3/1-7; 750 FL likely voters), Gov. Rick Scott (R) has taken a 43-41% lead over Sen. Bill Nelson (D) if the pair were to face each other in the impending US Senate race. Last week, an online Survey Monkey internet poll found the Senator owning a ten-point advantage. For his part, Gov. Scott has still yet to announce his Senate candidacy, but all political observers expect him to soon do so now that the legislature’s 60-day session has concluded. The Governor stated in a post-session interview with an Orlando Sentinel newspaper reporter that he will “…think about his future in the next few weeks.”
