Crist Still Holds Lead, But Fails to Close the Deal
Attorney General Charlie Crist has been frontrunner since day one, but as the election comes to a close, he as not been able to seal the deal. Democratic Congressman Jim Davis continues to stay on Crist's heels in the final week of the campaign.
The latest poll shows Crist at 48% and Davis at 42%, but after trouncing Gallagher in the primary and building a huge advantage in both hard and soft money contributions, Crist cannot seem to get over the magic 50% number.
This is a sharp difference from a month ago when he held 16 point lead in the polls and was sitting pretty with 54%.
