PolitiFact Florida has been putting former Gov. Charlie Crist's changing stances on hot topics on our Flip-O-Meter. We're not making a value judgment on that flip -- we're merely tracking whether he did indeed flip and to what extent.
From PolitiFact's principles: "Indeed, voters often like politicians who are flexible and have the ability to compromise or adapt their positions to the wishes of constituents. Still, accusations of shifting positions are so common in politics that it is valuable to have us provide an analysis of a shift and rate the amount of change."
