Poll: Incumbent Nelson still leads Harris in Senate race
Associated Press
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - U.S. Rep. Katherine Harris of Sarasota holds a double-digit lead in her bid to win the Republican Senate nomination in September, but she trails incumbent U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson of Melbourne by 37 points in a general election matchup, a new poll shows.

Nelson, who is completing his first Senate term, was favored by 61 percent, while Harris had 24 percent and 11 percent were undecided in the survey released Thursday by the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute.

"It would be hard to come up with a reasonable scenario in which Sen. Nelson has anything to worry about," Quinnipiac's Peter Brown said.

The results were similar to a Mason-Dixon poll announced Wednesday that showed Nelson with 57 percent and Harris with 29 percent.

Harris has rejected numerous Republican overtures to leave the race because her campaign is so far behind. She has been plagued by staff defections and her links to a corrupt defense contractor.

She was favored by 40 percent in Quinnipiac's survey of the GOP primary while Orlando-area attorney Will McBride received 21 percent, LeRoy Collins Jr. 6 percent and Tampa Bay-area developer Peter Monroe 3 percent.

However, nearly a third of the respondents were undecided and 54 percent who supported Harris said they could change their mind.

"The special circumstances of the Republican Senate primary leave the door open," Brown said. "She has not yet completed the sale."

Harris was seen favorably by 30 percent of the Republican respondents and viewed by 26 percent as unfavorable.

The telephone poll was conducted July 19-24. For the general election, it surveyed 1,541 registered voters and had a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 2.5 percentage points. For the Republican primary, the poll of 340 likely voters had a margin of error of plus or minus 5.3 percentage points.

The poll also showed 58 percent disapproved of the way President Bush is handling his responsibilities, compared to 39 percent who believe he is doing a good job.

"We're in perilous times in our country and the president has had to make difficult choices," Gov. Jeb Bush said about his older brother's poll standing. "He's not getting credit for the economy which has been robust."

The governor, meanwhile, nears the end of his second term with a 56 percent approval rating.


without a fucking bigass outbreak on her hands?
