A new statewide poll shows Florida Gov. Charlie Crist holding a slim lead in the three-way race for the U.S. Senate.

A survey by Quinnipiac University of 1,133 registered Florida voters shows Crist's independent bid slightly ahead of Republican Marco Rubio. Crist received 37 percent to Rubio's 33 percent while Democrat Kendrick Meek received 17 percent in the poll taken June 1 through 7.

Both Republican gubernatorial hopefuls — Attorney General Bill McCollum and businessman Rick Scott — lead Democratic front-runner Alex Sink. Scott leads Sink 42 percent to 32 percent while McCollum leads by a 42-34 margin.

The poll's margin of error was plus or minus 4.7 percentage points.
