Poll: Rick Scott Widens Lead Over Charlie Crist


Florida Gov. Rick Scott’s (R) lead over former Gov. Charlie Crist (D) has increased, according to a new poll.

The poll, conducted by NBC affiliate WFLA and SurveyUSA, found Scott with 44 percent support and Crist with 39 percent. Meanwhile, Libertarian candidate Adrian Wyllie got another 7 percent support and the remaining 9 percent said they were undecided.

The margin of error was 4.2 percentage points.

The poll’s findings are a continuation of a number of surveys that show a tightening gubernatorial race. The TPM Polltracker average finds Scott with a 0.6 point lead over Crist, a shift from April when Crist seemed to have a solid single-digit lead.

The poll was conducted from September 12 to September 15.
