Today’s Survey USA poll: Charlie Crist 45% Rick Scott 41%

in Uncategorized by

With three weeks to go until Election Day, Democrat Charlie Crist appears to have the wind at his back.

Crist now leads 45 to 41 percent, doubling his lead over Gov. Rick Scott to four points, according to a new Survey USA poll released today. WFLA broadcaster Keith Cate tweeted the numbers.

Topline trends from Survey USA show Crist gaining momentum, as compared to earlier polls. Just a few days ago, a similar survey gave Crist a two-point lead, 44-42 percent; before that, the same pollsters gave Scott a slim lead, by 43-42 percent.

Once the full poll is released, we will post the crosstabs.
