Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson has taken a 53-46 percent lead over his Republican challenger Gov. Rick Scott in the Florida Senate race, according to a Quinnipiac University Poll.

The two were in a 49-49 percent dead heat in a Sept. 5 Quinnipiac poll.

Here is how the new poll breaks down:

  • 10 percent of Republicans favor Nelson, compared to 94 percent of Democrats. Fifty-six percent of independents also back him.

  • 89 percent of Republicans back Scott, compared to 5 percent of Democrats. Forty percent of independents favor Scott.

  • 58 percent of women back Nelson; 41 percent favor Scott.

  • 51 percent of men favor Scott; 47 percent back Nelson

  • 44 percent of likely voters in Florida approve of the job President Donald Trump is doing, compared to 54 percent who do not.

“A Nelson win would be a big boost for Democratic hopes of wresting control of the U.S. Senate from the GOP.”said Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.

The poll, conducted Sept. 20-24, surveyed 888 likely voters in Florida. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points.
