Polls Show Support for Davis, Crist, Sink, and Justice
Recent polls have given the edge in the upcoming primaries to Charlie Crist and Jim Davis (see photo) in the Republican and Democratic primaries, respectively. However, the Democratic primary between Davis and Rod Smith is considered wide open, with 64% over voters undecided. The number of Republican undecideds was only 34%. Additionally, Crist has maintained a strong lead for months, while the Gallagher campaign has been struggling with scandals and poor fundraising.
In other Republican primary for CFO, Tom Lee leads Randy Johnson, but with a whopping 78% undecided, that lead is frankly meaningless. In the general election, Democrat Alex Sink leads both Republicans. In the race for Attorney General, Skip Campbell has a statistically insignificant lead over Bill McCollum.
While the poll was not released, Senate Democratic leader, Steve Geller, told reporters that internal polls showed Democrat Charlie Justice with a ten point lead over his potential Republican opponents. In April, Justice touted another poll, also showing him with a lead over either possible Republican opponent.
