U.S. Rep. Kendrick Meek holds a 39 – 29 percent lead over Jeff Greene in the Florida race for the Democratic nomination for the U.S. Senate, while Attorney General Bill McCollum holds a slight 39 – 35 percent lead over Rick Scott in the contest for the Republican nomination for governor, according to a Quinnipiac University poll of likely primary voters released today.
With 22 percent of Republican likely voters and 28 percent of Democratic likely voters undecided, any verdict is possible. Former Miami Mayor Maurice Ferre gets 3 percent in the Democratic Senate primary, the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University poll finds.
In the GOP race, 39 percent of Scott supporters and 27 percent of McCollum backers say they still could change their mind. In the Democratic race, 43 percent of Greene supporters, but only 27 percent of Meek’s backers say they might change their minds.
