The latest Quinnipiac poll shows that Democratic Senator Bill Nelson is leading Florida Governor Rick Scott in their senatorial race, but with two weeks until election day, a new Republican insider poll shows Scott pulling away from his opponent.

Scott’s pollster, Wes Anderson, released the following poll numbers, which shows his boss in solid and favorable position.

Of the 2,200 likely voters polled, Scott leads Nelson by margin of 51% to 40%, with 45% Floridians disapproving of Nelson’s job in the senate.

“It should also be noted that this sample from last week is very robust at 2,200 interviews of likely voters, stratified by county to reflect historic mid-term turnout. Our sample shows the Republicans with a one-point turnout advantage, even though we believe we will end up with a two- or three-point advantage. For historical context, in the past two mid-term elections Republicans had a four-point advantage in 2010 and a three-point advantage in 2014. At R+1, that makes our current sample a very conservative take on the likely partisan composition of this year’s electorate.”-OnMessage
