The heated race for the U.S. Senate in Florida reportedly shows incumbent Sen. Marco Rubio in a statistical dead heat with his Democratic challenger, Rep. Patrick Murphy, according to Democratic polling for the contest.

The Hill reports the survey by Civis Analytics for Senate Majority PAC, a Democratic super PAC, breaks down like this:

  • Murphy: 45 percent
  • Rubio: 44 percent
  • Undecided: 9 percent

The Hill reports the survey's model shows undecided voters are more likely to break toward Murphy; Civis picks the Democrat to win in November with 51.6 percent of the vote.

The poll was conducted Aug. 9-Aug. 15, more than two weeks before both candidates won their respective primaries, The Hill notes.

In an averaging of polls by Real Clear Politics, Rubio has a 5.7 percentage point lead over Murphy.
