Polls in Key Florida Senate Race Reveal Last Minute Drama

Bill Nelson (D-Fla.) is currently in a statistical tie with Governor Rick Scott (R), a new poll from their Florida Senate race shows.

The St. Pete Polls survey released Monday found 48.6% of likely Florida voters favoring Rick Scott, who can’t run for another term as the governor due to term limitations. Meanwhile, 48.3% of respondents said that they favored Bill Nelson.

That 0.3% difference falls well within the 2.5% margin of error.

The poll showed that 3.1% of likely voters are still undecided with two weeks left before the general election.

Surveys still show Bill Nelson and Rick Scott in a highly competitive race for the crucial Florida Senate seat.

A CNN poll that was released just one day earlier showed Bill Nelson held a 5% advantage over Rick Scott among likely voters.

Earlier in the month, a survey that was conducted for Gray Television via Strategic Research Associates showed that Nelson had a 1% lead.

Senator Nelson and Governor Scott clashed on several issues, such as the tragic mass shooting in Parkland, Florida, and health care, during a debate earlier in the month. But the second debate was canceled after the candidates could not agree on the date.

Cook Political Report rates the Scott vs. Nelson Senate race as being a “toss up.”

The St. Pete Polls survey was conducted from October 20 to 21 and polled 1,575 likely voters.
