Poll Watch: Rasmussen (R) Florida 2012 Senatorial Survey

Rasmussen (R) Florida 2012 Senate Poll
  • Connie Mack (R) 43% {41%} [43%]
  • Bill Nelson (D) 36% {41%} [39%]
  • Bill Nelson (D) 41% {45%} [39%]
  • George LeMieux (R) 38% {35%} [33%]
  • Bill Nelson (D) 42% {43%}
  • Mike McCalister (R) 38% {37%}
Survey of 500 likely voters was conducted March 13, 2012. The margin of error is +/- 4.5 percentage points.  Results from the poll conducted February 13, 2012 are in curly brackets.  Results from the poll conducted November 17, 2011 are in square brackets.
Inside the numbers:
Nelson is viewed very favorably by 20% of Florida voters and very unfavorably by 23%.

For Mack, very favorables and very unfavorables are both 15%. Seven percent (7%) share a very favorable opinion of LeMiuex, while 20% view him very unfavorably.  McCalister is seen very favorably by five percent (5%), very unfavorably by 15%.

Unfavorables are up seven points for Nelson from last month at this time and up five for LeMieux. The numbers for the others are basically unchanged.

All three Republicans lead among male voters, while Nelson is out front among female voters. The GOP hopefuls are ahead among married voters but trail among unmarrieds.

Mack and Nelson are now almost tied among voters not affiliated with either of the major political parties, but the incumbent leads LeMieux and McCalister among these voters.
