Crisl leads Scott 44 to 41 percent. Crist’s lead has slipped two percentage points from the last poll, while Scott remains flat in the survey. 

In the last News Channel 8 poll, conducted by Survey USA, Crist was up 46 to 41 percent.

Survey USA asked likely voters, “If the election for Florida governor were today and you were filling out your ballot right now, who would you vote for?

In the new survey, 6 percent said they would vote for another candidate, which is down from 7 percent during the last poll. 8 percent said they were undecided, which is up from 6 percent previously.

The margin of error for the poll is plus or minus 4.3 percent.
