Fla Sen poll: Mack 26%, LeMieux 13, Miller 12, McCalister 5, Hasner 2



From a NewsMax/InsiderAdvantage poll: Congressman Connie Mack joined the race for the Republican nomination for the U.S. Senate in Florida only in late October, but he has a solid lead over all other announced candidates, a new Newsmax/InsiderAdvantage poll reveals.

In the survey of registered voters who will likely be casting ballots in Florida’s Republican primary in 2012, 25.6 percent said they preferred Mack, son of a former U.S. Senator from Florida, for the nomination to face incumbent Democrat Bill Nelson.

He easily beat out former U.S. Sen. George Lemieux, who garnered 12.9 percent of the vote. Lemieux was appointed in 2009 to finish the term of retiring Sen. Mel Martinez.
