Despite being a former Republican, Charlie Crist’s standing in his new party is so strong that he would wallop longtime Democratic U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson by 13 percentage points in a theoretical primary for governor, a new poll shows.
The survey, conducted by Republican Gov. Rick Scott’s pollster, also indicates Crist is still formidable in a general election and leads the incumbent by 4 percentage points among likely voters.
Scott fares better against Nelson, who has a mere 2-point lead over the Republican in a general-election matchup, according to the poll of 1,000 likely voters conducted last month by Fabrizio McLaughlin & Associates.
The survey, which deeply undercuts the talking points of some Nelson backers who say he’s a better candidate than Crist, is among the first to match up the two in a Democratic primary.
