SHARE Poll: Florida’s governor’s race too close to call

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — The race between Republican Gov. Rick Scott and Republican-turned-Democrat former Gov. Charlie Crist is too close to call.

That’s according to a Quinnipiac University poll of likely Florida voters released Wednesday.

The poll shows that 44 percent of likely voters prefer Scott, and 42 percent prefer Crist, while 8 percent say they’d vote for Libertarian Adrian Wyllie.

But the margin of error is plus or minus 3.1 percent, meaning the race is a statistical tie.

What voters do agree on is neither of the major party candidates is trustworthy.

The poll showed that 49 percent of voters don’t think Crist is honest, compared to 37 percent who say he is. Scott’s numbers are similar — 51 percent say he isn’t trustworthy compared to 39 percent who say he is.
