According to exclusive poll results obtained by this blog, Republican incumbent Peter Nehr holds a healthy 16 point lead over Democratic challenger Tom McKone.  McKone trails Nehr 44% – 28% according to this poll taken on March 17 & 18  and has a margin of error of 4.9%.  Keep in mind, this is not my poll, so I cannot verify the polls’ results, but my source for this information is from the same source which provided the spot-on polling data during the St. Petersburg Mayoral Race.  Nehr enjoys a strong Favorable/Unfavorable ratio, while McKone is largely unknown to most voters.
