A new poll from Public Policy Polling shows Democrat Charlie Crist leading Republican Rick Scott by seven points, 49% to 42%. But these numbers are being given little credence by Scott’s camp.
“This polling doesn’t pass the common sense test,” said Greg Blair, a spokesman for the Scott campaign, as first reported by Kevin Derby of Sunshine State News. “A Democratic pollster, working for a Democratic attack group, not only found Charlie Crist winning in Florida, but also claims Republicans are losing noncompetitive races in Kansas and Georgia. Despite the outlandish claims made in this polling, Charlie Crist will continue to be weighed down by the disaster known as Obamacare and his support for the policies of a deeply unpopular president.”
Blair also took a shot at PPP’s polls of the special congressional election in Pinellas County last month.
“And if you think PPP is an accurate outfit, please call Congresswoman Sink’s office for her response,” added Blair.
