Gravis Marketing’s new poll of Florida’s Democratic Primary finds that Charlie Crist is the clear favorite to be the Democratic nominee for governor.

The poll shows Crist leading his primary opponent Nan Rich, 68 to 20 percent.

Unless Charlie Crist makes any serious mistakes between now and the primary, then he essentially has this race locked up.

Unlike the gubernatorial race, the race to be the Attorney General nominee for the Democrats is up in the air.

Two-thirds of the respondents were uncertain of who they were voting for in the primary, but of the third that were certain George Sheldon led Perry Thurston 18 to 15 percent.

“The race is a clear tossup,” said Doug Kaplan the head of Gravis Marketing, “with a whopping two-thirds of the respondents unsure of who to vote for the race is clearly up for grabs.”
