Charlie Crist and Rick Scott in Dead Heat in New UNF Poll
A poll from the University of North Florida (UNF) released on Monday shows former Gov. Charlie Crist, the favorite for the Democratic nomination despite spending most of his political career as a Republican, beating Gov. Rick Scott by a hair.
The poll of registered voters has Crist with 34 percent with Scott right behind him with 33 percent. But 34 percent of voters are on the fence with 17 percent saying they would back someone else besides Scott and Crist and 17 percent still undecided.
The poll shows 45 percent of those surveyed approve of Scott while 39 percent disapprove. A UNF poll from October had 49 percent approving of Scott while 42 percent disapproved of him.
The poll of 507 registered voters in Florida was taken from March 6-16 and had a margin of error of +/- 4.35 percent.
