Conservative poll: Crist beats Scott 46-36%; Clinton tops Rubio 49%-45% in FL


It's been some time, but finally we have a new Florida poll of the governor's race done by Gravis Marketing for the conservative Human Events publication. Gravis is relatively new to Florida and skewed heavily conservative in 2012 (showing Connie Mack within striking distance of Bill Nelson).

Still, this poll looks a lot like the other ones: Charlie Crist is beating Rick Scott by 10 points.

Here's Human Events:

"There is bad news for Republican Florida Gov. Richard L. Scott in a Nov. 9 Human Events/Gravis poll of registered voters in Sunshine State with respondents preferring former governor Charles J. Crist Jr., 46 percent to 36 percent one year before the election.

"The poll also questioned voters about gay marriage, medical marijuana, Obamacare and gun rights, as well as about Sen. Marco A. Rubio (R.-Fla.) and former first lady and senator Hillary R. Clinton. The poll was a random sample of 932 registered voters in the state.

"Doug Kaplan, the founder and president of Gravis Marketing, said Scott’s key problems are his weakness among Independents and his high unfavorables.

"Among Independents Crist beats Scott 51 percent to 30 percent with 19 percent undecided, he said.
