Maybe Connie Mack is right that the race for the GOP nomination in Florida’s US Senate race is over.

According to a new Public Policy Polling survey, Dave Weldon’s late entry has had little initial impact on the Republican contest for the Senate in Florida. Connie Mack IV continues to be the clear leader with 34% to 13% for George LeMieux and 10% for Mike McCalister, with Weldon starting out at only 6% in the polls.

Mack continues to be the only candidate with any sort of name recognition. 53% of Republican primary voters have an opinion about him. LeMieux’s at 31% and McCalister and Weldon are both known to less than 20% of the likely electorate.

Mack is winning easily with every segment of the electorate. He’s pulling in similar numbers with men, women, moderates and conservatives, and is especially strong with seniors.
