Two polls show Nelson well ahead of Mack

by John Kennedy | September 25th, 2012

While Republican Connie Mack IV made his way by bus across the northern half of Florida, he was dogged Tuesday by more bad poll numbers.

The Washington Post and Public Policy Polling both released surveys showing Mack well behind Democratic U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson, who is running a low visibility re-election campaign. The Post showed Mack 14 percentage points back, while PPP had him down by 9 percent — slightly worse than where he stood three weeks ago.

“Nelson’s still not popular,” PPP concluded. “Only 34% of voters approve of him to 41% who disapprove. But he lucked out with an extremely weak opponent. Only 30% of voters have a favorable opinion of Mack to 44% with a negative one.”

Mack has been out to improve those negatives. On Tuesday, he campaigned in Orlando, where he was endorsed by the National Federation of Independent Business, and in Lakeland.

Meanwhile, American Crossroads, the superpac formed by former George W. Bush strategist Karl Rove, is airing a new TV spot in Florida blasting Nelson for supporting the federal health care overhaul.
