Rasmussen poll: Connie Mack leads Bill Nelson, 46%-37%

Looks like the tough ads by outside groups attacking Bill Nelson may be taking a toll on the Democratic incumbent. From Rasmussen Reports:

Republican Congressman Connie Mack draws his highest level of support yet against incumbent Democrat Bill Nelson in Florida’s 2012 U.S. Senate race.

A new Rasmussen Reports statewide telephone survey of Likely Voters shows Mack earning 46% of the vote to Nelson’s 37%. Seven percent (7%) prefer some other candidate, and 10% are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.) 

The numbers were flipped back in April when Nelson held a 47% to 36% lead over Mack. At that time, Mack still had heavy competition for the GOP nomination and was being heavily criticized for a lackluster campaign. The contest was closer in earlier surveys.... 

Mack draws 86% support from voters in his own party, while Nelson is backed by just 66% of the state's Democrats. But the incumbent leads Nelson leads by nine points among Florida voters not affiliated with either major political party.

The Republican leads 43% to 37% among male voters in Florida and by an even wider 48% to 38% margin among female voters.

Nelson is viewed Very Favorably by 17% of Florida voters and Very Unfavorably by 25%. The latter finding is up from the previous poll.

For Mack, ratings are 18% Very Favorable and 14% Very Unfavorable. Both ratings have inched up slightly from April.

Can't Take Anymore

Wow, another Republican sponsored Rasmussen push poll. These guys are so conservative they want to restore the English monarchy to rule the USA. Connie XXII has not yet had the light of day cast on him to sway voters. He had the big money boys chase off his possible primary opposition so he will be untested going into the general election. He is taking the Mitt Romney approach to campaigning: let secret donor money groups smear Bill Nelson, sit at home (the one in California, in DC or in Florida?), speak only on script and in platitudes, and try not to do anything really stupid in the next four months.

Rasmussen poll had Connie Mack at 43%, Nelson at 36% in March and was later proven false by many polls even some that polled right favorably.
Rasmussen again proves they have ZERO credibility.
The only reason to waste money on a Rasmussen poll is to get the result you want.


See the polling accuracy truth from 2008 below.

Why do leftists ignore polling reality? Is it that they prefer their own set of facts?

“Pre-election projections for two organizations’ final polls—Rasmussen and Pew—were perfectly in agreement with the actual election result (**).

The following list ranks the 23 organizations by the accuracy of their final, national preelection polls (as reported on pollster.com).

1. Rasmussen (11/1-3)**
1. Pew (10/29-11/1)**”

Whasup never heard of a push poll I suppose.
GOP are the ones who spread lies, and it IS statistically proven that Republicans have a lesser grasp of actual facts than liberals, or at least it was proven in a poll. :P

It always amazes me that Liberals feel they are so much smarter. They will be the destruction of America as we know it. Let's grow the government so we can increase the free stuff that other people have to pay for. Blame bush even though Democrats took over the congress in 2007 and let Cris Dodd and Barney Frank required Fannie Mae to give home loans to people unqualified to buy them. Congrats liberal democrats. You will have your way since it is obvious that the takers outnumber the givers but the day will come when the goose who laid the golden egg will be killed and then you will see what is happening in Greece. Who will you take the money from then?
