Poll: Nelson opens 44-36 lead over Mack in Senate raceby George Bennett | March 29th, 2012
Mack and Nelson are tied among male voters at 41 percent apiece, but Nelson has a 14-point lead among women.
Quinnipiac’s Peter Brown links Nelson’s improved numbers to President Obama‘s rising fortunes in the state. Mack has also been hammered on character issues in recent weeks by Republican primary rival George LeMieux, who has called Mack the “Charlie Sheen of Florida politics.”
The poll of 1,228 registered voters, conducted March 20-26, has a 2.8 percent margin of error.
