On April 24, Rasmussen released results of its Florida gubernatorial poll. Respondents were asked, “Suppose you had a choice between Republican Rick Scott and Democrat Charlie Crist. If the election were held today, would you vote for Republican Rick Scott or Democrat Charlie Crist?”
Even though respondents were thus discouraged from expressing support for any other candidate, the results are: Crist 45%, Scott 39%, “someone else” 6%, undecided 10%. Adrian Wyllie, a Libertarian, has been campaigning for Governor, and one wonders what the results would have been if the poll had mentioned him. Thanks to PoliticalWire for this news.
