Florida Gov. Rick Scott and gubernatorial opponent Democrat Charlie Crist are neck and neck according to the latest poll by Quinnipiac University. Voters remain divided between the two major party candidates.

The poll shows 44 percent of likely voters favor Scott, while 42 percent would pick Crist. Libertarian candidate Adrian Wyllie has support from 8 percent.

But Assistant Director of the Quinnipiac University Poll Peter Brown says he expects Wyllie’s 8 percent to fade come election day.
