Charlie Crist Tops Rick Scott by 10 Points in Latest Poll

happyshinybigots.jpg
Charlie Crist has only been running for governor for 12 days, but he's already raised nearly $900,000. And according to the first poll released since his announcement, he has a 10-point lead over incumbent Rick Scott.

According to a Gravis Marketing poll, Crist would beat Scott 46 to 36. The poll was taken from November 8th to the 10th, and surveyed 932 random registered voters.

Forty-six percent Crist understands average Floridians better, while only 33 percent said the same of Scott. When asked whether who would be more likely to stop and help them if they got a flat tire (yes, and odd question), 42 percent said neither, 36 percent said Crist and only 22 percent said Scott.

Meanwhile, the poll found Floridians approve of medical marijuana 45 to 41 percent.

Forty-eight percent said Florida should not cooperate with Obamacare compared to 43 who said the state should.

Forty-two percent said Florida should restrict gun rights, while 36 said they should be expanded.

Forty-five percent said Florida should allow gay marriage, but 43 percent still opposes it.

Meanwhile, the vast majority of Floridians remain undecided as to whether they'd vote for incumbent Attorney General Pam Bondi or either of her two Democratic challengers, which isn't good news for Bondi, as the vast majority of Floridians say they have no idea who those challengers, Perry Thurston and George Sheldon, are.

Bondi lost all credibility when she became a big Sarah Palin supporter and friend.If Bondi can't see this woman is a moron,I have zero faith in her ability to lead Florida's legal system,or anything else for that matter.

I know. He only has been successful in undoing all the damage caused by Crist before. We can't have more jobs or less crime.

I Knew it.  It is confirmed!   The Left Wing hates  higher employment and less crime.

So the Left's plan is to keep on calling Rick Scott names and insults to feed the Low information Voter they so need to win any election.

Scott (the alien) should take the 100 million he is going to waste and give it to fund for teachers and school supplies so the terribly underpaid teachers do not have to pay for their own teaching supplies! jk

Why anyone would want someone like Crist who obviously has no stance on anything nor cares about anyone is beyond me.

@Anthonyvop1 low information voter?Perhaps you need but look in the ,mirror to see that.The employment is a national scenario,while Crists numbers were likewise affected by the asinine deregulation policies of the right.Of course bankers and people in the financial sector need no regulation.Would people who make their living in finance really be crooked?Besides that idiocy,employment and crime go hand in hand Einstein.When Bush blows up the economy,and unemployment hits double digits,there is more crime because people need money to survive.I knew it,the morons on the right want to take credit for the economy they destroyed,being fixed and the crime rate falling as a direct result.EINSTEIN

@Ant    Anthony,you yourself are the epitome of the man who thinks he knows everything,but is a clueless jackass.The crime rate has been lowered in almost every state in this country,while employment has also risen in every state.With your logic,I suppose we should have a Democrat in the oval office guaranteed,because the dow was at 7800 when Obama took office and now sits at 16000.,with both crime dropping and employment rising.It seems you forget the lAST YEAr Bush was pres and the market crashed and the entire countries economy was destroyed.Scott could have jis under his desk and got the same result...you low information moron .
