In Florida's race for the U.S,. Senate, Republican incumbent Marco Rubio leads Democratic Representative Patrick Murphy by 10 points in a Bloomberg Politics poll released Wednesday.

The survey of 953 likely voters in Florida shows:

  • Marco Rubio, 51 percent
  • Patrick Murphy, 41 percent

Independents support Rubio 51 percent to 36 percent.

Almost half of likely voters say Rubio's campaign is more about preparing for a second presidential bid in 2020 than serving the state's people. Even 28 percent of those backing him say that.

Rubio is winning his biggest margins from those in the Panhandle (+26 points), those without a college degree (+13 points), and Catholics (+24 points), while the challenger is tied with Rubio among Hispanics and outperforming him among non-whites (+14 points) and those in the Miami area (+5 points). Rubio wins men by 11 points and women by 8 points.

The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.2 percentage points.
