TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -

A new poll shows that Florida voters aren't pleased with either Republican Gov. Rick Scott or former Gov. Charlie Crist, who is trying to win his job back.

A Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday shows that former Republican-turned-Democrat Crist has a slight lead over Scott - unless you add Libertarian Adrian Wyllie in the mix.

In a head-to-head matchup, Crist leads Scott 45 to 40 percent.

But when Wyllie was added to the poll, he received 9 percent support and drew more voters away from Crist than Scott, making the race a statistical tie.

Voters said they don't trust Scott or Crist.

Only 39 percent of those polled say they thought Crist is honest, and only 40 percent said Scott is. The poll's margin of error is plus or minus 2.8 percent.
