Election 2018: Florida Senate - Florida Senate: Nelson (D) 45%, Scott (R) 44%
Rasmussen ^ | September 13, 2018 | Rasmussen

Posted on 09/14/2018 1:49:54 AM PDT by familyop

Incumbent Democrat Bill Nelson and retiring Republican Governor Rick Scott are in a virtual tie in the hotly contested U.S. Senate race in Florida.

The first Rasmussen Reports statewide telephone and online survey of Likely Florida Voters finds Nelson with 45% support to Scott’s 44%. Five percent (5%) prefer some other candidate and six percent (6%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Unless something of an unusual nature occurs in the next six weeks...I think Scott wins by three to four points. The polling is suspect.

Well with 6% undecided, if that is accurate, this poll favors the challenger(Rick Scott). Conventional wisdom says the undecideds should break toward the challenger.

Rick Scott probably lost a good ten percent of voter support, with his recent NeverTrump comments.

Scott stepped in it big time by criticizing Trump over the fake Puerto Rico hurricane death toll numbers. Now I know why Scott looks like a penis. It’s not just his bald head. The guy is a real Richard Head.

Has Scott aligned himself with #MAGA and DJT?

Would Scott vote to confirm another judge like Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court?

Would Scott vote in favor of our Second Amendment rights?

Should we try to keep a Republican majority in the U.S. Senate?

Did he enact new gun legislation after Parkland?

Unless there’s some hurricane on the horizon (I’ve yet to see weather guys suggesting that)....I don’t think it’ll be that. Course, if you had some Florida cop shoot some teenager, or some idiot shoot a dozen people at some bar....that might be a turning point.

Scott did much to support the President in 2016 including raising money for him and has been friendly with him since. Now, though, he needs to try to get votes from independents, too. The President, by the way, showed up at a rally for both Scott and DeSantis.

You can try these keywords in a search, if you like.

Governor Rick Scott trump

Or try different ones. But remember that there are also many Hispanics and women in Florida. Talk of babies, puppies and hurricane victims can mean much in a political campaign. ;-)

Scott was conspicuously absent from the DeSantis rally, and IIRC, DeSantis ran a campy TV ad aligning himself w/DJT which helped to propel him into a lead. If the poll you posted is accurate, the race is close because of Scott, not Trump.

Would Nelson do better?

Hell no. The sorry bastard scott needs to be voted on to protect our President. Doesn’t mean he isn’t a POS. You disagree and think he isn’t?
