A new poll shows Gov. Rick Scott with a slight lead over U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla., in one of the most closely watched U.S. Senate races in the nation. 

Florida Atlantic University Business and Economics Polling Initiative (FAU BEPI) released a poll on Wednesday which found Scott taking 44 percent and Nelson behind him with 40 percent and the rest undecided. 

Half of those surveyed--50 percent--approve of Scott while 32 percent disapprove of him. Nelson was approved by 37 percent of those surveyed and disapproved by 32 percent. 

President Donald Trump, who carried Florida in 2016 and is headed to Tampa on Tuesday, is upside down in the poll with 47 percent disapproving of him and 41 percent approving of him, down slightly from the highest rating he has scored as president from Florida voters according to FAU back in May when 43 percent approved of him and 45 percent disapproved of him. 

Asked what the top issue is, 29 percent of those surveyed say immigration and 26 percent think it’s health-care with a partisan divide on the matter as 43 percent of Republicans say immigration is the most important issues while 34 percent of Democrats say it is health-care. 

An overwhelming majority of Floridians--86 percent--say they are concerned about  toxic algae blooms impacting the state with 53 percent of those surveyed saying they are very concerned about them. 

The survey, which polled 800 Florida registered voters July 20-21, was conducted using an online sample supplied by Survey Sampling International using online questionnaires and via an automated telephone platform (IVR) using registered voter lists supplied by Aristotle, Inc. The survey has a margin of error of +/- 3.4 percentage points. 



Nelson's Doing the Kavanaugh Shuffle

Bill Nelson Says He Doesn’t Need To Motivate Black Voters


I need help walking and I'm 56. My co-pays for 12 physical therapy visits would total 1800. And if that didn't work, insurer will approve surgery with big co-pays for the ankle surgery (orthopedic surgeon, anesthesiologist, hospital fees, etc) Followed by more physical therapy which is needed but they seem to discourage at $150 a pop patient share. So which guy wants to make sure a mid level income guy like me doesn't have to choose between paying their daughters university tuition, limping in discomfort, and buying the BIG ibuprofen bottles at Costco or getting treatment and not limping.

In other states Medicaid is offered to low income men. Did you know this state is sexist?? If your a man and low income, you don’t qualify.. you don’t count. Rick Scott is defrauding our state funds through Medicaid. There is so much proof of this. We need to investigate this and with the money returned from his blind trust and that if his friends women and men can survive a health care crisis

Scott has already spent millions but barely ahead...………….. As Nelson comes in later and the debates where Nelson will tear Scott a new one things will change.

You have to admire such creativity (FAU BEPI) , does anybody believe this bs?
