Incumbent GOP Sen. Marco Rubio has a 6-point lead over Rep. Patrick Murphy, the Democrat challenging him for his seat,  a Quinnipiac University Poll released Thursday shows.

The poll shows:

  • Marco Rubio: 50 percent.
  • Patrick Murphy; 44 percent.

Rubio's lead among independent voters, 54 percent to 38 percent for Murphy, signals Rubio is highly likely to win, says Peter Brown, assistant poll director.

"Candidates with a 16-point lead among independent voters rarely lose, and Sen. Rubio, who has that edge over U.S. Rep. Patrick Murphy, appears to be pulling away from the challenger. But anything is possible," Brown said.
