In hypothetical match-up, Charlie Crist leads Rick Scott, but so does any generic Democrat

Public Policy Polling: In a hypothetical match-up Charlie Crist, running as a Democrat, would lead Rick Scott 45-42.

A generic Democrat would lead Scott by the exact same 45-42 spread so it’s not like Democrats would need Crist to be their standard bearer in order to knock off Scott- he’s lost much of what was once his unique appeal.
