Bill Nelson 43%, Connie Mack 39% in new Quinnipiac poll
Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson edges US Rep. Connie Mack by a nose, 43 – 39 percent, in a November match-up, according to a new Quinnipiac University poll.
Nelson’s razor-thin lead over Mack compares to a tie in the May 24 Quinnipiac University poll with Mack at 42 percent and Nelson at 41 percent.
“Sen. Nelson gets modest reviews from voters who give him a 47 – 32 percent job approval rating,” said Brown. “By 46 – 33 percent they say he deserves another term. He gets a 44 – 26 percent favorability rating. By comparison, Mack has a 34 – 22 percent favorability rating, with 42 percent who don’t know enough about him to form an opinion.”
In the Nelson-Mack matchup, Nelson carries Democrats 80 – 9 percent and independent voters 44 – 33 percent, while losing Republicans 81 – 6 percent. Men split 42 – 42 percent while women go for Nelson 44 – 36 percent.
