NEW DAY, NEW POLL: WHICH DO YOU BELIEVE?
Over the weekend, we had a poll from the New York Times Regional Newspaper Group in Florida that showed Attorney General Charlie Crist (R) with a 14 point lead over Democratic challenger Congressman Jim Davis.
Today, we have the lastest Survey USA poll of 682 "likely" voters which was taken last Thursday through Saturday (November 2 - 4). The margin of error for this automated poll is 3.8 percent. Participants were asked about only three races.
In the governor's race, Republican Attorney General Charlie Crist retains his lead over Democratic Congressman Jim Davis, but the margin is more in line with other recent polls:
Charlie Crist (R): 49%
Jim Davis (D): 47%
Other candidates: 3%
No great surprises regarding the U.S. Senate race, with Democratic incumbant Bill Nelson holding a huge lead over GOP challenger Congresswoman Katherine Harris:
Bill Nelson (D): 59%
Katherine Harris (R): 36%
Other candidates: 4%
The only other race that the survey asked about was that for Chief Financial Officer, which is turning out to be down to the wire between retired financial executive Alex Sink and State Senate President Tom Lee:
Alex Sink (D): 50%
Tom Lee (R): 46%
Won't Vote: 2%
