Governor Rick Scott is holding a lead over his challenger, former Governor Charlie Crist in Florida’s gubernatorial race. I support Rick Scott for Florida governor. The Naples Daily’s Matt Dixon has the story on the poll here:
Most recent numbers have shown Gov. Rick Scott opening a lead over Democrat Charlie Crist, a trend continued in a poll conducted by Associated Industries of Florida.
The group’s most recent survey has Scott topping Crist by a 47-41 margin when those two are the only candidates included. That lead shrinks to a 44-41 margin, within the poll’s 3.1 percent margin of error, when Libertarian Adrian Wyllie, candidates with no party affiliation, and undecided voters are included.
Associated Industries of Florida, which has endorsed Scott, is one of the state’s largest business lobbies. It conducts regular polls, but has a track record of only sharing the results privately with members. Officials declined to comment on the most recent survey, obtained by the Scripps-Tribune Capital Bureau.
Like other recent public polls, the numbers show Crist’s popularity has slipped with nearly all demographics.
