Charlie Crist Would Crush Rick Scott in 2014, Quinnipiac Poll Finds
Gov. Rick Scott would lose handily to former Gov. Charlie Crist in a hypothetical 2014 matchup for governor, according to a new Quinnipiac University poll.
Crist, a recent convert to the Democratic Party who is considering running, would defeat Scott by 50 percent to 34 percent, the poll found. By a 50 percent to 40 percent margin, voters also support Crist’s decision to switch to the Democratic Party.
Scott’s woeful poll numbers persist: Only 32 percent of voters say he deserves a second term in office, including 28 percent of independent voters. In addition, 36 percent of voters say he is doing a good job compared to 49 perent who say he’s doing a bad job, including 26 percent of Republicans in Florida.
