With election day five weeks away a new Mason-Dixon survey of registered Florida voters shows Republican Senator Marco Rubio continues to lead Democratic challenger Val Demings in the state's U.S. Senate race.
"Statewide 47% support Rubio, 41% support Demings," pollster Brad Coker said. "Virtually unchanged since a poll we did earlier this year."
Coker says President Biden's unpopularity in the Sunshine State isn't helping Demings' chances.
"Joe Biden's approval rating in Florida is only 42% and 54% disapprove of the president's performance."
Coker says it's a 'tough sell' to convince voters to send a Democratic Senator to Washington to support President Biden.
The deadline to register to vote in Florida's November 8 general election is next Tuesday.
