Fascinating Aug. 5-7 Schroth Eldon & Associates poll of the potential Democratic primary field for governor in 2014. It wisely includes Miami resident Anthony Shriver, part of the Kennedy clan, who looked seriously at challenging Alex Sink for the Democratic nomination in 2010:

Alex Sink 31 percent; Charlie Crist 29 percent; Anthony Kennedy Shriver 8; Dan Gelber 3; Jimmy Morales 2; Nan Rich 1; Undecided 26.
