Ultimately, the outcome of this race is a referendum on the people of Florida.
Can a political huckster, and Crist is just that if there ever was one, get the majority of the vote?
Election 2010: Florida Senate
Florida Senate: Rubio 36%, Crist 34%, Meek 15%
Florida’s Senate race remains all about Republican-turned-independent Charlie Crist and likely GOP nominee Marco Rubio.
The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in Florida finds the two candidates neck-and-neck again this month, with Rubio earning 36% support and Crist, the state’s current Republican governor, capturing 34% of the vote. Prospective Democratic candidate Kendrick Meek remains a distant third, picking up 15%. Fourteen percent (14%) of the state’s voters remain undecided.
If Meek’s Democratic Primary challenger, billionaire real estate Jeff Greene, is their opponent, Rubio gets 37% of the vote to Crist’s 33%. Greene earns 18% support, while 12% remain undecided. Crist’s support is down eight points from the previous survey, while Greene is up five.
According to recent news reports, some influential Democrats are gravitating toward Crist, who has been moving to the left legislatively in recent weeks. Greene, meanwhile, has been spending heavily to introduce himself to Florida voters.
