Recent polling conducted by Curt Schultz, a marketer and creator of the Super Brochure, puts Libertarian Gubernatorial Candidate Adrian Wyllie well within the winnable range. Schultz’s results coincide well with other polls that either limited the choices to only Republican-turned-Independent-turned-Democrat Crist, Tea Party Favorite-turned wavering moderate Incumbent Republican Rick Scott, and undecided; or provided the choices of Crist, Scott, someone other than Crist and Scott, and Undecided.
How Schultz conducted the poll
Schultz compiled this data calling 278 voters between the hours of 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. of January 27 through February 7. This group of 278 voters included 146 women and 132 men. The sample comprised of 124 Democrats, 122 Republicans, 16 Libertarians, and 16 NPA (No Party Affiliation)/other.
The actual question asked to the surveyed voters read: "If the Florida Governor's race was held today, would you vote for Charlie Crist, Rick Scott, Adrian Wyllie, or are you undecided?"
Among the 278 voters surveyed, the largest group, 33 percent or 92 of the 278, answered “Undecided”. In second place, 28 percent or 78 of the 278 responders, considered Crist their first choice. Incumbent Rick Scott placed third, with 23 percent or 63 of the 278 surveyed callers, selecting the incumbent as their first choice, while the remainder, a respectable 16 percent or 44 of the 278 voters, want Wyllie to win.
Results comparable to UNF’s mid-March polling
Schultz’s results are quite comparable to the University of North Florida’s (UNF) polling, which asked 507 voters between March 6 and March 16 which candidate they supported for the campaign for Governor. According to UNF, who chose not to use Wyllie’s name, gave the options of Crist, Scott, “Somebody Else”, and Undecided. UNF reported 34 percent of voters backing Crist, 33 supporting Scott, 17 percent preferring “Someone Else” (Wyllie) and 16 percent were undecided.

Race is far from won for anyone
Though the bought and paid for mainstream media refuse to mention anyone other than Charlie Crist or Rick Scott among the candidates running for governor this November, the increasing popularity and accuracy of alternative and independent media will work to ensure Adrian Wyllie remains in the ranks of the viable candidates in Florida’s Gubernatorial Election this November.
However, Wyllie and the alternative/independent media cannot win this race alone. Adrian Wyllie is asking for volunteers to work, and campaign donations from those voters unwilling to settle for “the lesser of two evils”, when in reality both candidates promoted by the media are evil, just in different ways.
