Poll: Sen. Nelson still far ahead
Published February 25, 2006
TALLAHASSEE - Democratic U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson still remains far ahead of likely Republican challenger U.S. Rep. Katherine Harris, according to a poll released Friday.
Nelson was favored by 53 percent of respondents, compared with 31 for Harris, according to the Quinnipiac University poll. The numbers were in the same range as polls the school conducted in November (55-31 percent) and August (57-33).
Both candidates had a similar response: Election Day is the only poll that counts.
"Until then, Sen. Nelson's going to keep working hard for the people of Florida," said Chad Clanton, his campaign manager.
"This will be one of the most competitive races in America," Harris spokeswoman Morgan Dobbs said.
The poll surveyed 1,076 registered voters between Feb. 15 and Feb. 20.
