TIMES/UF POLL SHOWS SCOTT WITH LEAD
Little more than two months before Election Day, a new poll shows Republican Gov. Rick Scott with a 5-point lead over Democratic challenger Charlie Crist. The Tampa Bay Times/Bay News 9/UF Bob Graham Center poll found that Scott received support from 40.9 percent of the people surveyed, while Crist was at 35.7 percent and Libertarian Adrian Wyllie had 6.3 percent.
In a head-to-head race, Scott led Crist by a margin of 43.7 percent to 37.6 percent. The telephone survey of 814 registered voters was conducted from Aug. 27 to Aug. 31 by the University of Florida’s Bob Graham Center for Public Service and Bureau of Economic and Business Research. It has a margin of error of 3.4 percentage points.
