In Florida’s U.S. Senate race, Democratic incumbent Bill Nelson has 41 percent, with 40 percent for his leading Republican challenger, U.S. Rep. Connie Mack.
In the U.S. Senate race, Congressman Mack gets 39 percent in the GOP primary, which is held in August. Mike McCalister and former U.S. Sen. George LeMieux are way behind with 6 percent each. No other candidate tops 2 percent. Another 42 percent are undecided.
“Connie Mack remains far ahead of the GOP field and there has been little movement since he entered the race late last year. With four out of 10 GOP primary voters still undecided, nothing is certain, but one would much rather be in Mack’s shoes than any of the other GOP contenders,” Brown said.
Mack has a 32 – 13 percent favorability rating with 54 percent who don’t know enough about him.
Nelson has a 47 – 30 percent job approval rating and a 41 – 23 percent favorability rating. “Good but not great,” said Brown, “and voters say 44 – 35 percent he deserves another six years in the Senate.”
