Poll: Dead Heat in Florida Senate Race

Wednesday, 27 Jun 2012 10:51 AM

Florida’s Senate race is currently a dead heat between incumbent Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla., and challenger Rep. Connie Mack, R-Fla. A new Quinnipiac University Swing State poll shows Nelson with 41 percent and Mack with 40 percent.

“The U.S. Senate race between Bill Nelson and Connie Mack remains a dead heat with 17 percent of the voters still undecided, an unusually large number,” said Peter Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute.

However, Senate races in Ohio and Pennsylvania are not close.

Incumbent Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, hold a double-digit lead over GOP challenger Josh Mandel, the state treasurer. Brown leads in the race 50 to 34 percent. Sen. Robert Casey, D-Penn., leads challenger Tom Smith, 49 to 32 percent.

The poll also found that the governors of the three states continue to have low approval ratings.

Voters disapprove of the job Gov. Tom Corbett, R-Penn., is doing by a 50 to 35 percent margin, his lowest since taking office.

"Gov. Tom Corbett continues his steady dive in popularity, from a 50 percent approval rating last September down to numbers that rival the embattled governors of Florida and Ohio," said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute.

Gov. John Kasich, R-Ohio, is viewed negatively by a margin of 44 to 40 percent, continuing a nearly uninterrupted 18-month run of negative scores. Gov. Rick Scott, R-Fla., is viewed negatively 48 to 35 percent, continuing a 16- month string of negative ratings.
