Skip to comments.Quinnipiac Poll: Florida Senate Race 'Down to the Wire'
Posted on 06/21/2012 4:32:13 PM PDT by Clintonfatigued
The November election between U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson and Rep. Connie Mack in Florida is set to be a close race, according to a new Quinnipiac poll.
Sen. Bill Nelson edges Rep. Connie Mack, 43 to 39 percent, in the Sunshine State contest for Nelsons Senate seat, a new Quinnipiac poll says.
The projected November election between U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson and Mack looks like it could go down to the wire, said Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute.
Nelson has gained the slight edge since being tied with Mack in a May 24 poll. Nelson has served two terms in the Senate, replacing Rep. Macks father who retired.
Brown said Nelson gets modest reviews from voters, who give him a 47-32 percent job approval rating compared to Macks 34-22 percent favorability rating.

Have to like Mack's chances in this one.
It’s good news that Bill Nelson is losing support. What sucks is that we have to resort to the likes of Connie Mack IV to win this.
He is so dull his brother-in-law told me that he has never voted for him once.
Can’t we get some fresh blood in here for G-d’s sake? Bill Nelson? Connie Mack? I mean, c’mon. They’re both so yesterday.
Mark my words.
And if that happens the Senate seat will go R. This looks like another coat-tails race.
Nelson will get axed by the tide which is running way too strongly against Democrats. Low enthusiasm to vote among Blacks Hispanics and Jews plus a popular well funded Connie Mack equals another Senate pick up.
That jackass Mack can pound sand. I don’t support wackjob illegal panderers that call me a “Nazi.”
Go Weldon !
I`m surprised it`s this close.. isn`t Nelson one of the sainted ones who can do no wrong?
43% for the incumbent.
Won’t be close in November.
Living in Florida, i don’t see it that close at all.
You might as well just vote directly for Nelson - exact same result
That’s good to hear..irrespective of the VP selection you think?
I’m for anything it takes to REPEAL OBAMA and RETIRE NELSON!
Pretty much - A great VP pick will help him of course & I suppose he could really mess up his VP pick, but I’m seeing good numbers here - along with a whole lot less of Obama/Biden stickers!
The Media are either deluded or lying - just like when Bush won over kerry in 04 & Jeb Bush blew away his opponent for his last term as governor.
‘...What sucks is that we have to resort to the likes of Connie Mack IV .....’,
agree. pretty sad.
The Republican Senate candidate will be decided in an August primary election.
Is it true he was picked for the astronaut program because a life time with an empty head had prepared him for weightlessness?
Why do you say that?
I am not prepared to back Mack the Lesser in the primary either (unless maybe he opens up a 10 point lead on Nelson) though his odds of winning it appear to be very high at this point.
BTW Former Senator Peppy LePew has dropped out and no one cares.
As for this poll, Quinnipiac sucks.
Peppy endorsed Mack, of course. Mack will win all of the RINOs, almost all of the establishment folks, and a goodly portion of the conservative vote, and there are a couple of conservatives who will split the remaining conservative votes (and there’s no runoff), so Mack will probably win handily.
I was referring to the primary, of course; I’m not too bullish on Mack in the general, even with Bill Nelson being so obviously vulnerable. Hopefully Romney will carry FL by 6% or so and it will be enough to put Mack over the finish line.
He was up in the polls on Nelson for a while but Nelson was at a low ebb and I think Mack said something dumb. I have FL less likely than Ohio, not sure about whether I’d also put New Mexico ahead.
What’s up with him and Mary Bono Mack? I guess I don’t get how they can be married but represent areas on opposite coasts.
I somehow got on Nelson’s email list. Every time he sends me some of his drivel I write back and tell him how much I hope he loses the next election and why I disagree with whatever he said in his email. Of course I never hear back and he keeps sending them to me. He never represents ME.
