They’ve been stuck at a narrow Scott lead most of the cycle, so this is good news.

Yeah, the momentum definitely seems to be with Nelson. Remember when the hurricane was supposed to make Scott surge to a mid-high single digit lead?

Either Nelson really is up 2 and everyone has suddenly become experts at polling Florida, or there is some weird herding going on here.

Luckily (I mean that in a non-political sense), the hurricane only directly effected a very small % of Florida's population (like close to 3%). I don't think a lot of people took that into account.

Don't underestimate Scott.

Hillary Clinton too was up by 2 in Florida one week before the 2016 election and was leading in most of the Florida polls in October 2016 only to lose Florida to Donald Trump by 1 percentage point.

Saying that "this thing happened this one other year so it'll happen this year too!" is a pretty clear sign that you're losing.

Don't be so sure. Trump's job approval rating are getting better and better in Florida and this poll was published before Trump's yesterday rally for Scott in Fort Myers, Florida.

Nelson wins by 4-5. This'll be one race we all look back on and laugh about after the election.

No most of the Florida polls were favorable to Hillary in 2016 and Trump won. GOP is getting good turnout in Florida lately. Scott will eek it out.

Bill Nelson is not Hillary Clinton, and Rick "Plurality" Scott isn't going to skate by with a win in the 40s this time.

Heh, well, I'm at least aware of the possibility that Tuesday night might not be great for the Democrats, I'd suggest you prepare yourself for the (stronger) possibility of it being bad for Republicans. Not every election is going to go down like 2016.

I mean, Trump only won this state by 1 against a hilariously (no pun intended) weak opponent, so Nelson winning by 2 in a better year for Democrats should come as no real surprise. He doesn’t even need to flip any Trump voters to win.

Ok so - Scott barely won in a much better year for the GOP against a worse opponent, therefore he cannot possibly win now?

Just so we can put an end to this dumb debate: the polling averages for gubernatorial/presidential elections in FL for the final 2 weeks:

2008
Polling: Obama +2.8
Actual: Obama +2.8
DIFF: 0

2010
Polling: Scott +0.2
Actual: Scott +1.1
DIFF: 0.9 R

2012
Polling: Romney +1.4
Actual: Obama +0.9
DIFF 2.3 D

2014
Polling: Scott +0.4
Actual: Scott +1.1
DIFF 0.7 R

2016
Polling: Trump +0.4
Actual: Trump +1.2
DIFF 0.8 R

Aggregate polling in FL has actually been quite accurate historically - and certainly possess no statistically-significant bias against the GOP.
