Rasmussen Research polls last week showed Sen. Bill Nelson with double-digit leads over all his potential GOP challengers, but Mitt Romney with a 1-point lead over President Barack Obama in Florida.

Nelson led Connie Mack 46-36 percent; George LeMieux 44-30 percent; and Mike McCalister 48-29 percent. Mack tied Nelson in a February Rasmussen poll.

Rasmussen showed Nelson and Mack tied in February. The new results precisely duplicate an April 12-15 Public Policy Polling survey.

In the presidential race, Rasmussen showed Romney with 46 percent to Obama’s 45 percent. A Purple Strategies poll taken the same time has a near-identical result, Romney up 47-45 percent.
