The media is already writing stories about how a blue wave will wipe out the Republican Party in 2018.
Anti-Trump journalists continually claim the American people hate Trump and will deliver a stinging rebuke to his supporters in Congress this November.
But the Democrats’ hopes for a landslide win crashed and burned when this poll was released.
Democrats need to win two Republican held seats in the Senate in order to make Chuck Schumer majority leader.
And while the Democrats have good opportunities to win in Arizona and Nevada, they also have to hold all ten seats where a Democrat incumbent is running in a state that Trump won in 2016.
One of the most endangered Democrat incumbents is Senator Bill Nelson.
Rick Scott, the sitting two-term Governor of Florida is running against him and a new poll shows Scott holds a four point lead.
On Thursday, Florida Atlantic University released a poll that gives an edge to Gov. Rick Scott (R-FL) over incumbent Sen. Bill Nelson (D-FL) in the Sunshine State’s U.S. Senate race.
The Florida Atlantic University Business and Economics Polling Initiative (FAU BEPI) poll showed Scott with a 44 percent tally versus a 40 percent tally for Nelson and the remainder “undecided.”’
The latest polling has been mixed with both candidates shown having single-digits leads in the surveys conducted going back to late May. However, the average of the polls tabulated by Real Clear Politics has Scott up by just under a percentage point.
The FAU BEPI poll surveyed 800 Florida registered voters on July 20-21 via an automated telephone platform and has a margin of error of +/- 3.4 percent.
A Scott win would guarantee Republicans hold onto the Senate.
And it also proves that the media narrative that the American people are ready to rise up and punish all of Trump’s allies is fake news.
Florida is the quintessential swing state and Scott was a strong supporter of the President in 2016.
Even though Scott infuriated conservatives with his embrace of gun control after the tragedy at Parkland he is still well positioned to defeat Nelson and keep the Senate in GOP hands.
