Fla. Poll: Only Martinez Can Beat Democrat

A new Florida poll shows that only Republican candidate Mel Martinez could beat the likely Democratic candidate in the hotly contested Senate race. The latest Mason-Dixon poll out this weekend found that if the election were held today, Martinez would pull 39 percent of the vote and match Betty Castor’s 39 percent. Castor is likely to win the Democratic primary. But the same poll found that Castor would trounce Republican Bill McCollum, beating the former congressman 44 percent to 39 percent.
