Rasmussen has Florida tied again, 47% to 47% for Barack Obama and John McCain. 47% say Crist is doing a good or excellent job, and 15% say he is doing a poor job.

"The new survey was conducted Sunday night, two days after the first presidential debate. In a survey taken the day after the debate, 36% thought Obama won the debate, 33% gave the advantage to McCain, and 31% were undecided....In Florida now, Mc Cain’s support among Republicans has dropped slightly which the percentage of Democrats backing Obama remains largely unchanged. Obama leads 51% to 39% among unaffiliated voters. McCain leads among men 53% to 40%. Obama leads with women voters 53% to 42%. The Republican is viewed favorably by 59%, unfavorably by 37%. Obama is viewed favorably by 52% of Florida voters, but 45% have an unfavorable view of him."
