FL-Sen: Katherine Harris Slipping

Posted by Tim Tagaris

Senator Bill Nelson is up for re-election in 2006 as the only statewide elected Democratic official in Florida. Some may recall the infamous Schiavo memo distributed by Senate Republican Mel Martinez, also of Florida. The memo read:

This is a great political issue, because Senator Nelson of Florida has already refused to become a cosponsor and this is a tough issue for Democrats.

Today a new Quinnipiac poll was released on Florida's 2006 U.S. Senate election:

Senator Nelson Job Approval: (MoE +/- 3%)

Approve: 50% (50)
Disapprove: 17% (17)
DK: 33% (33)

And Nelson's opponent? Polling among Republicans in Florida:(MoE +/- 5%)

Representative Katherine Harris: 31% (37)
State Chief Financial Officier Tom Gallagher: 23% (20)
Attorney General Charlie Crist: 17%
Lieutenant Governor Toni Jennings: 8%
