Crist Pulls out in Front of Republican and Democrat in Poll

From the St. Petersburg Times:

A new Florida Chamber of Commerce poll suggests Charlie Crist may be widening his lead over Republican Marco Rubio and Democrat Kendrick Meek in the U.S. Senate race.

Where other recent polls showed Crist barely edging out Rubio, the June 9-13 survey of 607 likely voters by the Florida Chamber of Commerce Political Institute and Cherry Communications found 42 percent backing Crist, 31 percent Rubio and 14 percent Meek. The margin of error was plus or minus 4 percentage points.

Independent candidate for governor, Bud Chiles, is polling 15% support:

It also found Rick Scott leading Bill McCollum for the Republican gubernatorial nomination, 35 percent to 30 percent; and both Republicans leading Democrat Alex Sink and independent Lawton “Bud” Chiles III. For the general election, Scott and McCollum were favored by 31 percent and 30 percent respectively, while Chief Financial Officer Sink drew 26 percent and Chiles 15 percent.

    Talked with some Green Party members in Florida about Crist.

    They like him and will continue to explore opportunities for the Green Party to nominate, endorse, and or support Crist as Green Party candidate…

    I think it’s great idea…
