A new Quinnipiac poll of Florida shows that two-term Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson could be in the fight of his life in his matchup against U.S. House Rep. Connie Mack (R).
The statewide poll of registered voters gives Mack a narrow one percentage point lead over Nelson, 42 percent to 41 percent — within the survey's margin of error of 2.4 percentage points.
Mack, who represents Florida's 14th Congressional District, is the heavy favorite to win the Republican Party's nomination in August. In the Quinnipiac poll, he claims the support of 40 percent of Republicans. No other GOP candidate tops ten percent.
The PollTracker Average currently gives Nelson a razor-thin lead.
