The November election between U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson and Rep. Connie Mack in Florida is set to be a close race, according to a new Quinnipiac poll.

Sen. Bill Nelson edges Rep. Connie Mack, 43 to 39 percent, in the Sunshine State contest for Nelson’s Senate seat, a new Quinnipiac poll says.

“The projected November election between U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson and Mack looks like it could go down to the wire,” said Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute.


Nelson has gained the slight edge since being tied with Mack in a May 24 poll. Nelson has served two terms in the Senate, replacing Rep. Mack’s father who retired.

Brown said Nelson gets modest reviews from voters, who give him a 47-32 percent job approval rating compared to Mack’s 34-22 percent favorability rating.

In the presidential race, a shift by independent voters gives President Barack Obama a 46 – 42 percent lead over Mitt Romney in Florida, according to the June 12-18 poll.

“At this point, Romney is not well-defined in the minds of many voters, especially those in the middle. This movement reflects that uncertainty among voters who are up for grabs,” Brown said.
