Election Day push for Nelson and Scott


Election day is upon us, and today Floridians will choose a new U.S. Senator and governor.

All the polls show that these two respective races are razor close, but turnout could be the deciding factor at the end of the night.

Republicans historically turn out on election day, but this year Democrats are trying to rewrite history by besting their political rivals during early voting and on E-Day.

In looking at the social media platforms of both Rick Scott and Bill Nelson, there is a very stark difference in the two.

Scott’s Twitter and Facebook is buzzing. Just today, Scott’s team has belted out several election day tweets, while Nelson’s Twitter handle and Facebook page have been dark since November 2.

Why is that?

Could it be that Scott is running as if he is 10-points down, and feels compelled to push the social media envelope that much more, or is Nelson so confident in his chances of winning re-election that he feels going the extra mile on Twitter is not all that pressing.

The latest Real Clear Politics average of polls has Nelson up by +3.3 percentage points. Because this race is this close, final election results won’t come in until about 10pm.
