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.

What was your polling sample? If it was made up of a bunch of Democrats, Liberals, homosexuals, Socialists, unemployed, and Affordable Care Act loving freeloaders then the results are understandable. Wait, that was definitely redundant and selfevident.

You want to compare Rick Scott to Charlie Crist, a man that is not a declared candidate in the governor's race. Why not compare him to Libertarian candidate Adrian Wyllie, a declared candidate for governor? The only reason why so-called "third party" candidates are irrelevant is because the media and polling companies refuse to acknowledge that they are relevant. You want to be "fair and unbiased"? Include Adrian Wyllie in your next poll.
