A newly released poll is now showing that Senator Marco Rubio may be in more trouble than many observers believe in his upcoming re-election contest in Florida.

As The Hill reports:


Rep. Val Demings (D) leads Sen. Marco Rubio (R) by 4 percentage points in Florida’s Senate race, according to a poll released Tuesday.

The poll, released by the University of North Florida’s Public Opinion Research Lab, shows Demings with the support of 48 percent of surveyed registered voters who said they would vote in the midterms.

Rubio, in comparison, received 44 percent support, while 7 percent said they would choose someone else.

Broken down by party, 89 percent of Republican voters supported Rubio, in addition to 36 percent of voters who either had no party affiliation or whose political affiliation was termed “other.” The poll found that Demings was supported by 94 percent of Democratic voters and 46 percent of voters with no party affiliation.

In spite of the bad news for team Marco, the race for Florida Senate has been so-far been deemed to be ‘lean Republican’ by the Cook political report.
