Charlie Crist has a double digit lead over David Jolly in the race for Florida’s 13th Congressional District, according to a new DCCC-commissioned poll. Crist leads Jolly by 11 points (50-39) with 11 percent undecided. Of the undecided voters in the district, more are likely to identify as Democrats than Republicans (37-20).
Jolly has become significantly less popular in this solidly Democratic district. Jolly’s net favorable rating has shrunken from +23 to +14.
This week, Charlie Crist begin airing his first set of TV spots titled “You Know Me” and “May Not Know” highlighting his deep roots in Pinellas County and his pledge to continue advocating for Florida’s working families, seniors, and women.

“Two things are clear from this poll: Charlie Crist is winning and David Jolly continues to lose popularity when the voters of this Democratic district learn that he is not the moderate he purports to be,” said Jermaine House of the DCCC. “For example, his record on women’s issues including his support for overturning Roe V. Wade and votes to defund Planned Parenthood won’t fly with the women of Pinellas County.”
