Q Poll: Big Crist, Davis Leads

26

July

From the new Quinnipiac University gov poll out today: Republican Charlie Crist leads Tom Gallagher 55 – 32 percent among likely Republican primary voters, including leaners, and 47 – 29 percent among all registered Republicans, according to the independent Quinnipiac University poll, down from a 49 – 21 percent Crist lead in a June 29 poll of registered Republicans.

Davis leads Smith 47 – 19 percent among likely Democratic primary voters, with leaners, and 39 – 15 percent among all registered Democrats, compared to a 32 – 16 percent Davis lead June 29.  But the Democratic race is more fluid because 33 percent of likely voters remain undecided and 64 percent of those who name a candidate say they might change their mind.

In general election matchups:
*Crist leads Davis 44 – 38 percent, up from 41 – 39 in June, and leads Smith 45 – 36 percent, compared to 42 – 35 percent in June
*Davis leads Gallagher 41 – 39 percent, compared to 42 - 35 percent in June.
*Gallagher leads Smith 39 - 38, compared to a 39 – 36 percent Smith lead in June.

Quinnipiac 7/19-24 surveyed 1,541 Florida registered voters with a margin of error of +/- 2.5 percentage points.  The survey includes 340 likely Republican primary voters, with a margin of error of +/- 5.3 percentage points, and 319 likely Democratic primary voters, with a margin of error of +/- 5.5 percentage points
