Mason-Dixon: Crist 50, Davis 43



A new Mason-Dixon poll in the governor's race shows Charlie Crist leading Jim Davis, 50 percent to 43 percent, with 7 percent undecided or favoring another candidate.

Both candidates first learned of the poll numbers while on the campaign trail. In Tampa, where he was casting an early ballot (for himself), Davis said: "We're gaining on him in every poll and he is outspending us dramatically."

Crist, traveling by car between Port Charlotte and Naples, called 50 percent "a magic number" and said: "I'd much rather be us than them."
