Forty-six percent of Florida voters would cast their ballots for Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla., in the upcoming Senate race, while 42 percent say they support Republican Gov. Rick Scott for the seat, a new Quinnipiac University poll reveals.

Here is how the Florida poll breaks down:

  • 86 percent of Republicans say they would vote for Scott, while 7 percent would back Nelson
  • 87 percent of Democrats back Nelson, compared to 7 percent who would cast their ballots for Scott
  • 46 percent of independents support Nelson, while 33 percent would vote for Scott.

The Hill noted Scott has yet to announce whether he will make a bid for the Senate seat, but political experts expect him to enter the race.

The survey results also show President Donald Trump's approval rating in Florida now stands at 42 percent, with 54 percent disapproving of his job performance.

The poll was conducted Feb. 23-26 and surveyed 1,156 Florida residents. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.6 percentage points.
