A shift in the mind-set of independent voters has made Florida’s governor’s race a ”dead heat,” according to a new poll by Quinnipiac University.
The poll, released today, shows Democrat Jim Davis narrowing the gap with Republican Charlie Crist to two points — 46 percent to 44 — well within the poll’s 3.4 percent margin of error.
Actually, what happened is that Davis started his TV campaign; previously Christ had the airwaves to himself. (Money still counts.)
Nevertheless, I admit that just as I was surprised at the size of Crist’s lead, I’m also surprised that Davis caught up so fast.
