WHAT THEY’RE READING: Challenger Mucarsel-Powell surges in U.S. Senate poll, closing in on Rick Scott

“It’s no secret that Floridians are fed up with Rick Scott and his extreme policies – we’ve been hearing it from voters in every corner of the state for months,” said Campaign Manager Ben Waldon. “Today’s poll confirms what the Debbie For Florida campaign has known all along: the more Debbie Mucarsel-Powell travels the state and shows Florida voters what she stands for, the tighter this race will become. Pushing an extreme agenda to ban abortion, steal seniors’ Social Security benefits, and raise taxes on the middle class has consequences – something Rick Scott will learn when Florida voters retire him and elect Debbie Mucarsel-Powell this November.”

Sun Sentinel: Challenger Mucarsel-Powell surges in U.S. Senate poll, closing in on Rick Scott

  • U.S. Sen. Rick Scott, R-Fla., is in a tighter-than-expected contest with his leading Democratic challenger, former U.S. Rep. Debbie Mucarsel-Powell.
  • A Florida Atlantic University Poll released Wednesday shows Scott with support from 45% of likely voters. Mucarsel-Powell has 43%. Effectively that’s a tie, within the survey’s margin of error.
  • The contest between Scott and Mucarsel-Powell is much tighter — a difference of just 2 percentage points among likely voters — than it was in FAU’s last statewide poll in April.
  • Scott had support of 53% of likely voters in the previous poll, 17 points ahead of Mucarsel-Powell’s 36%.
  • “In April, a lot of people didn’t know who Mucarsel-Powell was. Her name recognition has improved considerably. With that, the support for her has improved,” said Kevin Wagner, an FAU political scientist.
