A new poll shows Republican-turned-Democrat Charlie Crist leads Governor Rick Scott.

Quinnipiac University's poll, released on Thursday, shows that 47 percent of voters prefer the former governor over the current one, who was preferred by 40 percent. But Scott has narrowed the gap compared to a March poll that showed Crist ahead by 16 percentage points.

Scott's approval remains low and more than half of those taking part in this poll said Scott doesn't deserve another term.

Crist is by far the leading Democratic opponent to Republican Scott.
