Gov. Scott Sees Slight Lead In Senate Race Over Nelson

The latest statewide poll shows Gov. Rick Scott holding a slight lead over incumbent Sen. Bill Nelson in the upcoming race for Florida's Senate.

According to the Mason-Dixon Poll released Tuesday morning, 47 percent of those surveyed said they would vote for the Republican candidate if the election were held today. 

Another 44 percent said they would vote for Nelson, the Democrat who is seeking a fourth term.

The difference is within the four percent margin of error with nine percent of voters surveyed saying they are undecided – essentially keeping the race as a toss-up heading into Election Day.

Scott maintained a 44 percent favoring rating among the 625 people surveyed – along with a 33 percent unfavorable result – while Nelson received favorable numbers from 36 percent of those surveyed to go along with a 31 percent unfavorable rating.
