Poll: Crist 39, Gallagher 29



The Florida Chamber of Commerce released an InsiderAdvantage/Majority Opinion Research poll showing Charlie Crist leading Tom Gallagher 39 percent to 29 percent with a whopping 29 percent still undecided. (8/23-24 500 likely Republican voters, moe +/- 4 percent).


"Let me assure everyone that the results of this race, even if Crist continues to hold his lead, will not be some hugely disparate 25 percent margin," said pollster Matt Towery. "Florida Republicans have a governor's race on their hands. How tight it becomes is in the hands of the two candidates."

In the Senate GOP primary: LeRoy Collins 8 percent; Katherine Harris 27 percent; Will McBride 11 percent; Peter Monroe 5 percent; don't know 49 percent.
