Rasmussen poll shows Rubio beating Crist

Rasmussen Reports, which last month found Charlie Crist and Marco Rubio in a dead heat, has a new poll out today showing Rubio with 49 percent support and Crist 37 percent:

Rubio leads Crist by 17 points among men and by seven among women. He also carries 52% of the conservative GOP vote, while moderates prefer Crist. ... Sixty-two percent (62%) of GOP Primary voters have a favorable view of Crist while 37% regard the governor unfavorably. Those figures include 19% with a very favorable opinion and 11% who have a very unfavorable view of him.

Rubio is viewed favorably by 67% of primary voters and unfavorably by only14%. These numbers include 35% with a very favorable opinion of the Cuban-American candidate versus four percent (4%) with a very unfavorable view.

Perhaps more telling for Crist is that just 56% of Republican Primary voters approve of the job he is now doing as governor. Forty-three percent (43%) disapprove of his job performance.

The community of Wilton Manors Florida is sad that Mr. Crist has dropped in the polls. He has always taken a hard stance for our causes.
