Poll reveals narrow gap in Crist and Scott
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A poll recently released by the University of North Florida shows that Charlie Crist has a 4-percentage-point lead over Gov. Rick Scott in a hypothetical matchup in the state's gubernatorial race.
If the election were held today, Charlie Crist would win the race by getting 44 percent of the vote to Gov. Scott's 40 percent.
Internals of the poll show the potential Democratic candidate's support is heavy from independents.
When Crist is replaced by Nan Rich on the ballot, in the hypothetical matchup, Democrats would lose the race for governor 43 percent to 28 percent.
Crist has not publicly decided if he will run in the 2014 race for governor.
