A new Survey USA poll finds former Gov. Charlie Crist (D) has jumped ahead of Gov. Rick Scott (R) and now leads the current governor by 6 percentage points.
The Survey USA poll conducted for WFLA-TV in Florida found Crist leading 46 percent to 40 percent among likely voters.
That’s a 7-point swing for Crist. A previous SurveyUSA poll, conducted from Sept. 19 to Sept. 22, found Scott leading Crist 43 percent to 42 percent among likely voters. That poll was also conducted for WFLA-TV.
From Sept. 26 to Sept. 29 among 750 Floridians.
The Miami Herald noted that the favorable shift for Crist comes as he increases his ad buys in the gubernatorial race.
The TPM Polltracker average finds Crist just barely leading Scott, by 0.9 points.
