POLL SHOWS WELDON LEADING NELSON
By SpaceCoastDaily // July 19, 2012
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Republican U.S. Senate candidate Dave Weldon has beaten incumbent Democrat Senator Bill Nelson in a poll of the key 18 – 34 age group of most likely voters in the general election.
The scientific poll, performed by independent pollster Magellan Strategies carries a margin of error of plus or minus 3.77% at the 95% confidence level. The group of 674 voters sampled were composed of “most likely” (85%) and “very likely” (10%) voters (Republican 39% and Democrat 42%) called between July 11 and 12, 2012.
Weldon, a retired seven term Congressman from Florida’s 15th District, has been campaigning all across Florida and has been using innovative, web-based technologies intended to energize his grass roots base. During his 14 years serving Florida’s 15th Congressional District, Weldon’s voting record demonstrated his authentic and consistent conservatism.
“At just over seven weeks into this campaign, it is gratifying to see this kind of result,” said Weldon.
“I believe my message and my record of Conservative leadership is widely welcomed by Florida voters,” said Weldon.
He encouraged all of his supporters with a “We can do it,” message recently and encouraged them to continue to work hard to get the message to all Florida voters.
“We still have work to do to get the message out to voters all across the state, but this amount of ‘traction’ shows the people who have a stake in the outcome are willing to choose my Conservative leadership over the failed liberalism that prevails in the U.S. Senate today.”
A practicing Internist who voluntarily retired from Congress in 2008, Weldon has been endorsed by such leading political figures as former Senator and Kansas Governor, Sam Brownback and Florida Congressman Bill Posey.
