Editor’s Note – A recent survey showed that 37% of Likely Voters in Florida are suffering from moral decay, and, in an unrelated Rasmussen Poll, Charlie Crist is currently polling at 37% in the state!
Just kidding about the moral decay, I think…although, it is clear that Crist is getting significant political milage from the Gulf oil spill disaster, which is expected to be around right through the primary election.
Seriously, though, how can the 37% percent that support Crist just look past his complete abandonment of all priciples? He posed as a pro-lifer until he decided to leave the Republican Party, and now he has scrubbed his website of pro-life material. How does that resonate with people as an example of quality leadership?
As for Marco Rubio, is the fact that Crist is polling so well an indication that Rubio is losing focus? Or, is it just another classic case of a politician preying on the emotions of the electorate? Of not allowing a good crisis go to waste?
Election 2010: Florida Senate
Florida Senate: Crist 37%, Rubio 37%, Meek 15%
Republican Marco Rubio and Republican-turned-independent Charlie Crist are tied this month in Florida’s topsy-turvy race for the U.S. Senate.
Still, 39% of all voters in the state say Crist will be hurt most by the ongoing investigation of alleged financial irregularities in the state Republican Party, while 31% think Rubio will be hurt the most.
Sixty percent (60%) of Florida voters now approve of the job Crist is doing as governor, up three points from a month ago. Thirty-seven percent (37%) disapprove. As governor, Crist has been very visible in addressing the Gulf Oil Spill
A month ago, Rubio held an eight-point advantage over Crist.
A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in the Sunshine State finds Rubio and Crist each earning 37% of the vote, while Democratic hopeful Kendrick Meek trails with 15% support. Eleven percent (11%) are undecided.
