Washington (CNN) – Only one day of campaigning remains before Florida primary voters go to the polls, and with time running out a new poll reveals that massive numbers of voters remain undecided even after months of tough politicking.
Rep. Kendrick Meek holds a 39 percent to 29 percent lead over billionaire Jeff Greene in the Democratic Senate primary, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released Monday morning. But 28 percent of likely Democratic voters say they are undecided in this contest.
In the marquee Republican match-up, Attorney General Bill McCollum holds a 39 percent to 35 percent lead over health care executive Rick Scott in the Republican gubernatorial primary. In that race, 22 percent of GOP voters say they have yet to choose a candidate.
"With one in five GOP voters and more than one in four Democrats undecided, anything is possible, but the internals of the poll are consistent with McCollum and Meek being ahead. They are more favorably viewed than their opponents and fewer of their backers say they might change their minds," assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute Peter A. Brown said.
The poll, conducted between August 21 and 22, surveyed 771 Republicans and 757 Democrats by telephone. The survey has a sampling error of plus or minus 3.5 and 3.6 percent, respectively.
