June 29, 2006 - Crist Edges Up In Florida Governor's Race, Quinnipiac University Poll Finds; President Gets No Bounce In Approval Ratings
Florida Attorney General Charlie Crist has opened a 49 - 21 percent lead among Republican voters over State Chief Financial Officer Tom Gallagher, his opponent for the Republican gubernatorial nomination, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today. Another 28 percent of Republicans are undecided. This compares to a 43 - 26 percent lead among Republicans May 24.

Crist also has inched ahead of U.S. Rep. Jim Davis, the leading Democrat in the governor's race, 41 - 39 percent. This compares to a 40 - 37 percent Davis lead in a May 24 poll by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University.

Among Democrats, Davis leads State Sen. Rod Smith 32 - 16 percent, with 49 percent undecided, compared to 38 - 17 percent May 24. But 74 percent of Florida voters, including 69 percent of Democrats, don't know enough about Davis to form an opinion. For Smith, the "don't know enough" numbers are even higher.

"Television can make a difference in politics. Attorney General Charlie Crist's sizable war chest began showing its muscle this month. Although the differences in the trial heats over the past month are not large, they are good news for Crist," said Peter Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University poll.

"Moreover, while Crist was picking up steam, his primary opponent, CFO Tom Gallagher, was moving in the other direction."

"Davis' primary lead over Smith narrowed a bit, but both Democrats remain largely unknown to the vast majority of Florida voters," said Brown.

Gov. Jeb Bush remains the most popular statewide elected leader in Florida, but opinion on the centerpiece of his education reform plan - requirement that the FCAT be passed for public school students to be promoted and allowed to graduate remains split.

Voters approve 57 - 34 percent of the job Gov. Bush is doing.

By a 48 - 44 percent margin, Florida voters favor retaining the FCAT requirement, with Republicans heavily in favor and Democrats opposed. When asked about the FCAT in April, voters supported its current usage by a 47 - 45 percent margin.

While voters support FCAT testing of students, they say 60 - 33 percent that FCAT scores should not be used to decide how much money schools receive.

"The FCAT issue has become a dividing line in the race for Governor with the Democratic candidates attacking, and the Republican contenders defending, Gov. Bush's education plan," Brown said.

President Bush's Approval

Florida voters disapprove 60 - 38 percent of the way President George W. Bush is doing his job, compared to 60 - 36 percent May 24. They disapprove 59 - 36 percent of the way President Bush is handling the war in Iraq and say 55 - 38 percent that going to war in Iraq was the wrong thing to do.

The U.S. should remove all troops from Iraq, 31 percent of Florida voters say, with 24 percent who want to decrease the number of U.S. troops, 22 percent who want to keep current troop levels, and 13 percent who want to increase the number of troops.

From June 20 - 26, Quinnipiac University surveyed 1,311 Florida registered voters with a margin of error of +/- 2.7 percentage points. The survey includes 520 Republicans, with a margin of error of +/- 4.3 percentage points, and 528 Democrats, with a margin of error of +/- 4.3 percentage points. The Quinnipiac University Poll, directed by Douglas Schwartz, Ph.D., conducts public opinion surveys in Florida, Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and the nation as a public service and for research.
