About this Poll

Democratic U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson has a two-point lead over Republican Gov. Rick Scott in Florida’s U.S. Senate race, according to a new poll released Friday by the Florida Chamber of Commerce.

The chamber’s poll, conducted Sept. 19 through Monday and released at the chamber’s 2018 Future of Florida Forum meeting in Orlando Friday, gives Nelson 48 percent and Scott 46 percent, which falls within the 4.4 percent margin of error the chamber cited.

The Chamber’s poll was of 622 Florida voters.

The poll also found modestly positive voter approval for both candidates’ job performances: 50 percent said they approved of Scott’s job performance, while 46 percent said they disapproved, giving the second term Governor a plus-4 favorability rating; 46 percent said they approved of Nelson’s performance, while 41 percent disapproved, giving him a plus-5. About one in seven respondents were unsure about Nelson, however, while only 4 percent were indecisive about Scott.

Also of note: The poll put the job performance of President Donald Trump underwater by a 51-46 percent margin. Trump has been vocal in his support of Scott during his Senate campaign, going so far as to stump for him and Ron DeSantis, the Republican vying to succeed Scott in the Governor’s mansion, during a late-July rally at the Florida State Fairgrounds in Tampa.
