Zogby poll: Rubio leads Crist by 6 percentage points

A new poll out from Zogby Interactive shows a tighter race for U.S. Senate than most previous polls with Republican Marco Rubio 39.6 percent, NPA Charlie Crist at 33.3 percent and Democrat Kendrick Meek at 18.1 percent. Undecideds remain at 8.7 percent. The poll was conducted Oct. 18 - Oct. 21. 

The poll continues to show that Crist's strength remains with independent and no-party affiliated voters: 39.4 percent of Democrats aligning with Meek and 38.2 percent with Crist. Meanwhile, independents favor Crist 47.5 percent over Rubio's 30.2 percent. While Rubio owns the Republican vote with 76 percent to Crist's 19.1 percent.

Those numbers also explain the regional breakdown where Rubio leads in South Florida by 36.5 percent to Crist's 33.6 percent and Meek has 19.1 percent. In the Central Florida battleground, Rubio's lead is larger with 41.8 percent compared to Crist's 35.4 percent and Meek's 16.2 percent.

LOL. What a joke. I hope the Herald keeps track of the polls and the results on Nov 2. Let's see how accurate Zogby is on Nov 3. Rasmussen, the most accurate polling company ever, has Rubio up by 15 points.


I think that a ton of Democrats that intend to vote for Meek will step into the booth and pull the trigger for Crist because they know that Meek has zero chance to win. That might just put Crist over the top. Moderate Republicans will likely do the same, and switch to Crist at the last moment.

I hope that the commentator is correct that people will not vote for Meek.


C. Christ is the winner!!!!!!!
