% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

The anticipated 2018 senatorial cage match between Florida Governor Rick Scott (R) and incumbent U.S. Senator Bill Nelson (D) edges closer to become reality, as a new poll taken by the University of North Florida shows Nelson with a early 6-point lead over Scott in a head-to-head match-up.

Yeah, it’s’ really early for polling, but not really.

Polls are always entertaining and fuel the political fodder that we all feast on.

The U of N. Florida poll (by the numbers:

-Number of registered voters polled: 973

-Margin of error: 3.14%

-Margin: Nelson over Scott 44-38

-Scott’s disapproval rating: 40%

-Scott’s approval rating: 46%

-Nelson’s disapproval rating: 28%

-Nelson’s approval rating: 42%

While Scott plays coy whenever he is asked about whether or not he will definitely announce a run against Nelson, a Scott senatorial run is the worse kept secret in Florida.

Nelson, who would be running for re-election to the senate for a fourth term, says he is ready to take on Scott, if the challenge presents itself.
