To state it succinctly, the race to replace Marco Rubio in the Senate is very much in dispute. A recent poll by Quinnipiac University shows that there is no clear front runner between the five Republicans and two Democrats vying for the seat.
Despite Democratic Minority Leader Harry Reed telling Democrat Alan Grayson in a face to face meeting that he hoped he would lose, the polling numbers indicate Grayson is in a dead-heat with his primary opponent Democrat Patrick Murphy.
And, in head to head match ups with the Republican candidates, Murphy is polling slightly better than Grayson.
Of the five Republican candidates, Congressman Ron DeSantis was virtually deadlocked with Murphy and Congressman David Jolly was only behind by 3 percentage points.
When asked, most Floridians can’t name a single candidate running to replace Marco Rubio in the Senate.
“The Florida U.S. Senate race is wide open with none of the seven candidates particularly well-known to voters,” Peter Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac Poll, said in comments released with the poll results.
The poll of 1,051 registered Florida voters was conducted from April 27 to Sunday. This year’s general election will be held Nov. 8.
