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.
Very Favorable/Somewhat Favorable 35%
Very Unfavorable/Somewhat Unfavorable 11%
Very Favorable/Somewhat Favorable 17%
Very UnFavorable/Somewhat Favorable 10%
I will be releasing data about Florida House District 45 tomorrow.
