TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Former Gov. Charlie Crist is leading Republican Gov. Rick Scott by 8 points in a new poll.

The poll released Thursday by Quinnipiac University finds that 54 percent don't think that Scott deserves a second term as governor. Only 41 percent approve of the job Scott is doing. The margin of error is plus or minus 2.5 percent.

The gap between Scott and Crist is closer than it was in a poll taken last March.

But Peter Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute, says Scott's momentum has stalled. Scott was trailing Crist by 7 points in a November poll.

Crist, a former Republican who switched to Democrat, announced in November he was challenging Scott.

The poll also found that 73 percent support raising the state's minimum wage.
