Chamber poll: gov race tightening, Crist still with wide lead

The Florida Chamber just released an interesting poll. The pro-business group that has long supported Attorney General Bill McCollum and other Republicans showed close races for both the GOP gubernatorial primary and the general election match up. According to the poll, Rick Scott leads McCollum 35-30, with 33 percent undecided.

In the general election, Scott leads Alex Sink 30-26, with 15 percent going to indy Bud Chiles. With McCollum in the race, the numbers are similar, 31-26-15.

The poll shows Gov. Charlie Crist with a 42-31-14 lead over Republican Marco Rubio and likely Democratic nominee Kendrick Meek.

The survey of 607 likely Florida voters was conducted June 9-13 by the Florida Chamber of Commerce Political Institute and Cherry Communications. It has a 4 percent margin of error. The Chamber also did not release full cross-tabs or the wording of all questions.

Plus, I want to see the internals on the Poll...

WWMD?

Meeks numbers are terrible and getting worse, wow. His lack of money and a potential fight in the primary make him the weakest US Senate candidate the Democrats have had in decades. Voting for Kendrick is basically like voting for Marco, bc Kendrick has no chance at all. DEMS, please vote for Charlie, just so we don't send Marco Rubio to the US Senate. Please. Charlie is a reasonable person and would be the best US Senator out of the choices we have.

WWMD very very well said. I am a hardcore Democrat (but I am also an INTELLIGENT democrat, not a STUPID one). Who would I vote for? Definitely CHARLIE CRIST. Not that he is my first choice, but like you said a vote for Kendrick Meek (as much as he is my first choice) would MEAN A VOTE FOR RUBIO!!!!!!!!!!

Lets see, Charlie endorsed the property tax amendment and attacked the insurance companies. Gosh, my property insurance has gone up 15% and in Tallahassee, my property taxes went up 15 %. Yeah, vote for Charlie.... more change, I THINK NOT!!!
