A Democratic Crist Would Crush Scott

One of the most surprising findings in the latest Public Policy Polling survey in Florida is the extent to which voters have forgiven former Gov. Charlie Crist (I) for his party-switching during the 2010 Senate race.

If Crist were to run for governor as a Democrat in 2014, he currently leads Gov. Rick Scott (R) by a 22-point margin, 56% to 34%. That is the same margin as Alex Sink, the Democratic gubernatorial candidate in 2010, leads in a hypothetical rematch against Scott.

Said pollster Dean Debnam: "If Charlie Crist has a future in electoral politics it's probably as a Democrat."
