Former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist easily beats the Sunshine Stateâ€™s current Gov. Rick Scott in a gubernatorial matchup, according to a new poll Wednesday.
Crist â€” who switched to the Democratic Party after having served as a GOP governor â€” gets 50 percent while the Republican Scott pulls in 34 percent, with the remainder being undecided or not answering, according to a Quinnipiac Polling Institute survey.
The poll shows that Cristâ€™s political party hopping may have helped him a little â€” 50 percent of those surveyed say his change from the Republican Party to independent and now to the Democratic Party is positive, while 40 percent view it as a negative.
â€œThe fact that voters think itâ€™s an asset that former Gov. Charlie Crist moved from conservative Republican to a Democrat with very different political views will be a key metric to watch between now and the 2014 voting,â€ said Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute. â€œThese numbers indicate Republicans will have a tough job turning around Cristâ€™s lead over Scott by reminding voters of Cristâ€™s evolution.â€
