A Libertarian candidate has a significant amount of support

CNN  — 

It’s a tied race between two unpopular men.

Three weeks before Election Day, Florida incumbent Gov. Rick Scott finds himself in a neck-and-neck sprint to the finish line against Democratic challenger and former Gov. Charlie Crist.

According to a new CNN/ORC International poll, each candidate has the support of 44% of likely voters, while Libertarian Adrian Wyllie pulls a significant share (9%) of the vote. With the race so close, Wyllie’s support sets the stage for a potential Libertarian spoiler.

“And with one in five likely voters saying that they could change their minds between now and Election Day, it’s really anyone’s ballgame,” said CNN polling director Keating Holland. The survey was done October 9-13 with 610 likely voters and has a sampling error of plus or minus 4 percentage points.
