Yesterday, Quinnipiac University released their latest poll on Florida’s race for governor. Despite still being down to Charlie Crist, Governor Rick Scott closed the gap from 14% in the last Quinnipiac poll conducted in March to 10% in this latest poll. In addition to the closing of the poll numbers, the approval rating for Scott has jumped from being in the high-30s to 43% in this poll. In other match ups, Scott is leading former senator Nan Rich 42% to 36%, yet 84% of voters are unfamiliar with Rich. Bill Nelson also held a 10% lead over Crist, 48% to 38%. The only person of interest that wasn’t polled was Alex Sink. But in the previous March Quinnipiac poll, Alex Sink only held a 5% lead over Soctt.
So, what do these polls numbers mean?
