A poll released by Axios-Survey Monkey on Tuesday shows that several incumbent Democrat senators in states Donald Trump won in 2016 up for re-election in 2018 are in danger of losing in November.

The poll was conducted in 13 states with competitive Senate races this November over a three week period, beginning on June 11 and ending July 2. About 1,000 respondents were surveyed in each state, and the margin of error for the results in each head-to-head Senate race is about 4.5 percent.

Florida - Scott - Point - Lead - Nelson

In Florida, Scott holds a three point lead over Nelson in the high Democrat turnout model, with a nine point lead in the high Republican turnout model.

In Tennessee, Republican Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) holds a 14 point lead over Democrat Phil Bredesen among registered voters, a 14 point lead in the high Democrat turnout model, and a 19 point lead in the high Republican turnout model.
