Skip to comments.Florida Senate: Nelson (D) 47%, Mack (R) 40%

emocratic incumbent Bill Nelson still leads Republican Connie Mack in Florida's hotly contested U.S. Senate race.
A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in the Sunshine State finds Nelson with 47% support to Macks 40%. Five percent (5%) prefer some other candidate, while eight percent (8%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
The latest findings show no change from mid-August. Florida remains Leans Democrat in the Rasmussen Reports Senate Balance of Power rankings. Nelson was first elected to the Senate in 2006 to fill the seat vacated by Macks father.
President Obama has now moved slightly ahead in the presidential race in Florida despite the presence of the Republican National Convention in Tampa late last month. But Florida remains a Toss-Up in the Rasmussen Reports Electoral College Projections.
Nelson is viewed favorably by 51% of Florida voters and unfavorably by 38%. This includes 21% with a Very Favorable opinion and 20% with a Very Unfavorable one.
For Mack, favorables are 40% and unfavorables 48%, including 17% with a Very Favorable view of him and 24% with a Very Unfavorable one. This marks little change for either man from a month ago.

"For Mack, favorables are 40% and unfavorables 48%"
Why is Mack viewed so unfavorably?
Me too, last poll I saw had Mack leading.
It's generally viewed here, by even the libs at the TampaBayTimes, that if Nelson is to win..he will have to run several points AHEAD of Obama...which will eb very hard to do.
Are the commies going to take FL?
Sounds like the popular “astronaut” will pull Obama to victory in FL, and with that the certain reelection. Republican primary voters will be held ultimately accountable for making such a weak nomination.
Last week, Mack was leading in this race. I guess the commie ‘RATS propaganda is starting to work. That and soaring gas prices, a crummy economy and Americans getting their asses kicked in the Middle East by the Muzzie Bros. The Entitled sure do vote funny.
That was 2000.
1 month and a half to go
Smear campaign. Bar fights, road rage, no shows.. etc...
When does the early voting start? Especially for our troops
y’all can bash poll all you want but lets be honest the polls for republicans and Romney look a little bleak at this point.
Seriously, are people effing nuts in this country?!!
It is near a crime against a once free people that elected Senators serve for six years. The smarmy demagogue Nelson is the poster child.
Mack is a rino I will happily vote in November. Here in NW FL, I have not seen or heard a single advert for him. He is invisible.
Pretty unintelligent at any rate. Shows what can be accomplished by making so many dependent on government redistribution from the makers to the takers.
UGH!!!! Horrible news. The ads Nelson is running really make Mack look bad.
To the combative go the spoils. There is no fight in the republicans....
When a republican does show fight like Sarah or Backman their own party devowers them...
Counting on republicans to preserve liberty is a fools errand....
A month or so ago, there was a poll that had Mack up by about 7 points, I believe. Many were skeptical and looks like they had good reason to be.
If we’re screwed in FL, Obama wins. Once again the MSM and a lackluster Romney campaign appear to give us a repeat of 2008. But ultimately, we now have a tribal electorate who vote their tribe. The Rats have figured out a way to appeal to each tribe.
That’s because all the political ads are down here in the I-10 corridor. When I lived in Tallahassee there were no ads. Not here in the Tampa bay area.
