Poll: Crist 51, Davis 37
Mirroring a Mason-Dixon poll to be released soon, the Florida Chamber of Commerce today released a 9/21-22 poll showing Republican gubernatorial candidate Charlie Crist by 14 points. The McLaughlin and Associates survey of 800 likely voters also shows the CFO and attorney general races statistical ties, while Sen. Bill Nelson leads Katherine Harris by 29 points. (MOE +/- 3 %).
“While Charlie Crist is leading Jim Davis by 14 points and Bill Nelson is leading Katherine Harris by 29 points, the Cabinet races are all within the margin of error” said Marian Johnson, vice president of political strategy for the Florida Chamber. “These races are flying under the voters’ radar – if the election were held today, voters would be voting strictly along party lines."
