Mason Dixon: Rubio has an insurmountable lead

Marco Rubio has built a "commanding and insurmountable'' lead in Florida's three-way Senate race, a new poll has found -- even without the latest political machinations in the race.

The poll -- which comes on the heels of revelations that former President Bill Clinton last week reportedly urged Democrat Kendrick Meek to get out of the race -- shows the Republican Rubio leading the field with 45 percent, followed by Gov. Charlie Crist at 28 percent and Meek at 21 percent. Only 6 percent of voters in the Mason-Dixon Polling & Research Inc. poll said they were undecided.

"There is simply no mathematical formula by which Crist or Meek can approach Rubio's 45 percent support level," said Mason-Dixon managing director Brad Coker.

   Even if Meek were to bow out now, Coker said, the math isn't there. Early votes have already been cast and Meek's name would remain on the ballot.

   "It was a pipe dream to begin with and if they were doing it, it should have been done a month ago," Coker said. "In three days how do you convince every Democrat who was going to vote for Meek that Crist is the guy?"

   He warned that the biggest loser in the "ham-handed move'' could be Democratic gubernatorial candidate Alex Sink, who needs a robust turnout among Democrats, including African-Americans.

Moderate Democrat

All us thinking Democrats understand that the only viable option to stop the right wing Rubio is Crist.

Ways to Lose Weight

And it is Frado with an A. This guy is such an @sshole. He thinks he's top dog because he can lose weight at a fast rate on the show, where your full time job is working out. But he had the muscle base from being in the military or whatever, however short a time he was in. Of course he's going to lose weight faster. Half the other folks have never attempted a push-up in their lives. He could physically work harder from the beginning. He's not special. He's just a lazy, angry person. Purposely throwing weigh ins, lying to people's faces. Fake crying at the voting table. Picking a fight with Aaron - the NICEST guy in the world? Napoleon complex anyone?
I like the show, but I hate that guy.

Agreed. At this point, I hope Mark or Ada wins. I can't see Lisa or Elizabeth staying once all the other strong players get voted off, and Frado, Brendan, and Patrick can go to hell where they belong.
Seriously, what kind of dick votes off his "friend" after saying the money wasn't worth it and also being called out on keeping the weakest players on so that they don't actually have to be challenged.
God, I miss last season so much. With the exception of the red team, they all seemed to genuinely be concerned about their health and not the prize money they could possibly win. With the exception of Michael's decision on black vs. blue, and as mentioned, Melissa, there was almost no game play, everyone was in it to lose weight and regain their lives.
