A Quinnipiac University poll shows the race between Democrat Charlie Crist and Republican Gov. Rick Scott is still tight.

Crist was supported by 43 percent of those polled while Scott received support from 40 percent. But the survey released Thursday has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.4 percent, making the race a statistical tie.

Libertarian candidate Adrian Wyllie received 8 percent support in the poll.

A Quinnipiac poll released eight days earlier showed each candidate with 42 percent support. Thursday's poll showed that 40 percent of respondents who already voted cast their ballot for Crist, compared to 39 percent for Scott.

The survey of 817 likely voters was conducted Oct. 22-27.
