Poll: 51% Approve Nelson's Performance



U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson's foray to Syria may not have won him any accolades from the White House, but Floridians don't seem to have a problem with it.

The poll also shows that Floridians love their Wal-Mart and politicians might want to be careful about bashing the retail giant.
