So, despite the Real Clear Politics polling average having Connie Mack trailing by six points, and despite Five Thirty Eight giving Connie Mack a one percent chance of winning, and despite the fact not a single newspaper endorsed his candidacy, Connie Mack today has made a bold prediction that Connie Mack will totally beat Bill Nelson in Florida's Senate race.
With seven days left until Election Day, the Connie Mack for U.S. Senate campaign today predicted that Connie Mack will win the race for the U.S. Senate based on the ongoing internal polling and analysis conducted by the campaign.
Specifically, the Mack Campaign predicts the following final results:
Connie Mack 49.1%
Bill Nelson 47.7%
Mack's campaign contends that external polls are too close too call (which isn't exactly true: the latest from PPP and Survey USA both showed Nelson with an eight point lead), and that he has a legitimate shot to pull off the 1.4 percent upset.
