DescriptionA poll released Tuesday from Public Policy Polling (PPP), a firm with ties to Democrats at the national level, reveals that Democratic U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson is ahead of most of his potential opponents, but remains vulnerable: He could not muster more than 50 percent against a pack of mostly unknown Republicans.

Despite first emerging in Sunshine State politics in 1972 when he entered the Florida House, the poll, which evaluates the 2012 U.S. Senate race in Florida, found mixed reviews for Nelson. After more than a decade in Congress, a gubernatorial bid in 1990, six years in the Cabinet and a decade in the U.S. Senate, Nelson finds his job performance in the PPP poll wins 36 percent approval and 33 percent disapproval, while 31 percent are undecided.

Nelson trails one potential Republican opponent. The poll has former Gov. Jeb Bush taking 49 percent while the Democratic incumbent trails with 44 percent. Despite being out of office since 2006, Bush remains more popular than unpopular in Florida, winning 51 percent favorable ratings and 40 percent unfavorable.
