Poll: Charlie Crist and Marco Rubio are tied

Wow. A new Rasmussen Reports survey shows that Republican Gov. Charlie Crist and former House Speaker Marco Rubio are tied 43-43 in the primary race for U.S Senate. About 5 percent prefer another candidate and 9 percent are undecided, according to the poll.

Let's call this an outlier. For now. 

Crist’s support has fallen from 53% in August to 49% in October. Rasmussen Reports noted at the time, “The fact that Crist has fallen below 50% in a primary against a lesser known opponent suggests potential vulnerability."

Ya don't say. More here.

Wow! Are Republican's that dumb to elect a guy that could lose the general. They're acting like Democrats. I like Marco, but he will lose in the general. Charlie on the other hand would be a shoe in against Kendrick.

Well this should help Marco raise some much needed coin, and maybe he can pull this off (hopefully).


The only real difference between Meek and Crist as a U.S. Senator is that Meek would get to fly on Obama's plane and Crist wouldn't. So between these two, Florida would be better off with Meek.

Shucking Chuckles, the Dumbocrat, has no business representing Florid in the Senate as a Republican.

However, if the Republicans are smart, they will nominate Rubio. The race between Rubio and Meek would provide an excellent race that could be fought on the real issues rather than celebrity or personality. That would be best for Florida and for the nation.


Marco Rubio is going to win this thing. It's about time Floridians showed these "rhinos" like Gov. Crist. Go Marc Go!!!!!!

David D.

No sense electing an "electable" big government republican who will just forget why we elected him and end up acting like a democrat (Crist, even hugging them).

(no republican in florda wants another Arlen Spector-like RINO).

Go Marco Rubio.


Charlie Crist is a closeted gay man. See the new documentary Outrage about closetd gay Republicans who vote against their own community.
