Gov. Rick Scott has closed the gap with Democrat Charlie Crist in a new statewide survey from a business interest showing the two candidates are virtually tied, 43-44 percent.
Crist’s 1 percentage point lead represents a net decline of 3 percentage points since the last time the business interest polled in February; The Miami Herald reported those results as well after agreeing to keep the source of the information private.
In February, Crist led Scott 42-38 percent in a poll taken by the group. The 1,000-person likely voter survey does differ in both technique and results from Quinnipiac University’s late April poll, which showed Crist up by 10 – a net 2 point increase since January.
