Former Florida governor Charlie Crist might be making a comeback in 2014. A new Quinnipiac poll finds that the Republican turned independent turned Democrat leads Gov. Rick Scott (R) 50 to 34 percent among registered voters in the state.

By a 50 to 40 percent margin, Florida voters say that Crist's party switching is a positive thing because it shows he is a pragmatist who can change with the times and issues, not a negative thing because it shows he has no core beliefs.
