Florida Gov. Rick Scott, a Republican, holds a slim lead over Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla., in the Senate race, according to a new poll from Florida Atlantic University.

  • Scott: 44 percent.
  • Nelson: 40 percent.
  • Undecided: 16 percent.
  • Likely voters were evenly split, 45 percent to 45 percent.

When asking about President Donald Trump, FAU found his approval rating is at its highest in Florida since taking office.

  • 43 percent approve of Trump.
  • 45 percent disapprove.
  • 29 percent think GOP tax plan helped them financially.
  • 19 percent said the tax plan hurt them financially.
  • 52 percent said the tax plan made no financial difference to them.

The poll also found most voters would prefer that former President Barack Obama were in office, 49 percent to 43 percent who wanted Trump in office.

Among the candidates for governor, most Republicans are split between Ron DeSantis and Adam Putnam, with DeSantis holding a slight advantage, while Democrats are divided between Phillip Levine and Gwen Graham, though most voters from both parties remain undecided.

FAU polled 1,000 registered voters by phone from May 4-7, with a margin of error of +/- 3 percentage points.
