PPP: Rick Scott nearly ties Nan Rich (37-36%), Charlie Crist wallops him 50-38%


Public Policy Polling, a firm that typically surveys for Democrats and liberals (and that has recently come under fire) released numbers today showing Gov. Rick Scott remains unpopular in Florida and vulnerable in next year's election.

Scott is virtually tied 37-36 with little-known former state Sen. Nan Rich, an announced Democratic candidate struggling to fundraise.

But former Gov. Charlie Crist, expected to announce as a Democrat within a month or so, would soundly beat him under PPP's poll: 50-38%. Crist has bested Scott 52-40 and 53-39 in other PPP surveys. In Quinnipiac polls, Scott has trailed by a lesser margin that still hovers around 10 percentage points.

The poll numbers haven't hurt Scott's fundraising, however, his Let's Get to Work committee continues to pull in money hand over fist.

Yellow dog comes to my mind. :-)

DUH! A dead dog is better than Rick Scott. I'm an independent voter and i'll vote for Crist just to get Scott booted. Scott is a failure.

Nan Rich could pull this off. Charlie has been registered in all the parties can we trust him?
Just ask a person who has or works with the developmentally challenged. We are in world of crap now but I am not so sure that Charlie left us any better off.
