Crist Internal Poll: Crist Leads, Barely

Independent polling differs on who leads the Florida Senate race--Public Policy Polling shows Marco Rubio ahead of Charlie Crist by eight percentage points; Quinnipiac shows Crist ahead of Rubio by seven--and now Crist's campaign has released an internal poll showing the governor up by one:

An Aug. 28-31 internal poll (MoE +/- 4.4%) for the Charlie Crist campaign points to a two-man race - Crist vs. Marco Rubio, who are virtually tied - while Meek remains an also-ran after his big primary win over Jeff Greene.. Crist and Meek split the Democratic vote, 37 percent each, while Crist pulls 21 percent of the Republican vote, compared to 66 percent for Rubio. Crist gets 55 percent of independents, compared t0 24 percent for Rubio
