Poll: Scott and Crist Locked in a Dead Heat


The race between Republican Gov. Rick Scott and Republican-turned-Democrat former Gov. Charlie Crist is a dead heat with two weeks left.

That's according to a Quinnipiac University poll of likely Florida voters released Wednesday.

The poll shows that 42 percent of likely voters prefer Scott, and 42 percent prefer Crist, while 7 percent say they'd vote for Libertarian Adrian Wyllie.

The poll shows that neither candidate is viewed favorably.

The poll showed that just 42 percent of voters have a favorable opinion of Crist. The figure is even lower for Scott. Only 40 percent have a favorable opinion of the incumbent governor.

Ninety percent of those polled said they have made up their minds.

The margin of error in the poll is 3.1 percent.
