A new poll shows half of Florida Republicans and almost that many Florida Democrats remain undecided on who they want to see replace U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., in the U.S. Senate. Currently running for the Republican presidential nomination, Rubio is not seeking a second term in the Senate.  

On Wednesday, Florida Atlantic University’s (FAU) Business & Economics Polling Initiative (BEPO) released a poll looking at the two Senate primaries. 

On the Republican side, half of those surveyed--50 percent--are still undecided. U.S. Rep. David Jolly, R-Fla., pulls more than a quarter of Florida Republicans, taking 28 percent. U.S. Rep. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., and Lt. Gov. Carlos Lopez-Cantera are knotted together with 8 percent each. Other candidates pull 7 percent in the poll. 

Businessman and Army veteran Todd Wilcox, who is running for the Republican nomination, was not included. Nor were potential candidates including former Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum and conservative leader Dan Bongino who ran for federal office in Maryland in 2012 and 2014.

On the Democratic side, 45 percent remain undecided. U.S. Rep. Alan Grayson, D-Fla., has the support of 27 percent of Florida Democrats while U.S. Rep. Patrick Murphy, D-Fla., gets 20 percent. Other candidates get 8 percent in the poll. Attorney and Navy veteran Pam Keith was not included in the poll. 

The poll of 345 likely Florida Republican U.S. Senate primary voters was taken from Jan. 15-Jan. 18 and had a margin of error of +/- 5.2 percent. The poll of 371 likely Florida Democratic U.S. Senate primary voters was taken over the same dates and had a margin of error of +/- 5.0 percent.

This carpetbagger tried to fool us here in Maryland, and we didn't bite. In fact, he was commonly known as Dan BonRino. If you want a RINO who thinks we should have unlimited H1B visas, amnesty for illegals, and a phony who will live off the dole, then this is your guy. The only good thing us Marylanders can say about this RINO is THANK GOD, he is out of our state!! This RINO is no conservative and I also encourage voters to take a long look at his FEC filings.

If you can't believe this is a common practice, you are a political neophyte. Read: "Extortion" by Peter Scweitzer. How do you think "I'm poor", (steal the White House silverware, dishware and furnishings) Hillary Clinton amassesd FOUR multi million dollar MANSIONS and a 280 million dollar "Foundation" "slush fund"??? The "Elite Political Class", and their staff members, are EXPERTS at stealing tax funds, and donations (from BOTH sides )of ANY issue, legislate themselves out of ANY and ALL mandated regulations and issues (Like for example "insider trading" on Wall know, the exact thing Martha Stewart went to prison for, would you for the same act). "Obamacare?...NO, EVERYONE in the building we call "Congress", as well as their families and staff are EXEMPT....Free hairstylists, free shoeshines, free cafeteris, and on and on and on, and on....They go to Congress idealistic, and full of promised good intentions, are corrupted by lobbyists (former Congressmen and Senators), by their own peers and special interest groups and leave Congress rich and go right to "K" Street and join a half-million dollar plus a year Lobbying firm (Watch Bill Nelson in 2018) . Do some research John. My choices for Rubio's Senate seat are DeSantis and Bongino, THAT order. David Jolly voted to fund Obama's "Illegal Amnesty"; Grayson is a lying, conniving schuyster pettifogger; Just ask his separated wife or research him a little more closely than you might normally...

Dan Bongino uses campaign contributions to pay for his personal and family expenses. Look at his FEC filings from his losing Senate and House races.
