A new poll released Wednesday on the upcoming 2014 gubernatorial race shows the path to Florida’s governor’s mansion is a lot less certain for most of the candidates than it was a few months ago.  The Libertarian candidate for governor is making inroads with voters—at the expense of Democratic hopeful Charlie Crist.

The same poll that shows Charlie Crist leading Rick Scott in a hypothetical matchup in next year’s Florida governor’s race also shows Floridians overwhelmingly support marijuana use for medicinal purposes, but aren’t in favor of changing Florida’s Stand Your Ground law. Peter Brown is the Assistant Director of Quinnipiac University’s Polling Institute, which conducted the survey.

A new poll shows Governor Rick Scott trailing Republican-turned-Democrat Charlie Crist with about a year to go before the 2014 gubernatorial election. The survey also shows there’s good news for Scott, despite Crist’s lead. But, though the poll doesn’t look good for another gubernatorial candidate in the race, she remains undeterred.

Governor Rick Scott’s approval rating may not be the best among Florida voters.  But, a new Quinnipiac poll shows the Republican Governor with the highest approval rating since he’s been elected. Scott’s latest approval rating is 43-percent, up from March’s 36-percent. The Quinnipiac University Polling institute’s Assistant Director Peter Brown says Scott may be benefiting from a better national economy.
