Florida Senate: Rubio (R) 38%, Crist (I) 33%, Meek (D) 21%

Editor’s Note – Is the world beginning to right itself?

Sanity certainly seems to be making a comeback as we see Crist begin to sink in the polls.

That loud noise coming from South Florida is a big sigh of relief from the Marco Rubio Campaign!


Florida Senate: Rubio (R) 38%, Crist (I) 33%, Meek (D) 21%


The race for the U.S. Senate in Florida continues to be all about Governor Charlie Crist and former state House Speaker Marco Rubio, regardless of which Democrat they face.

The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in Florida shows Rubio with 38% of the vote and Crist at 33% if Congressman Kendrick Meek is the nominee. Meek earns 21%. Only one percent (1%) prefer some other candidate, and seven percent (7%) are undecided.

If billionaire Jeff Greene is the Democratic candidate, Crist gets 37% support to Rubio’s 36%, with Greene trailing at 20%. two percent (2%) like another candidate, and five percent (5%) are undecided.

Last month, Rubio also held a narrow lead if Meek is the Democratic nominee, and Crist was slightly ahead with Greene in the race.

But the lead in this race has seesawed between Crist and Rubio for months, ever since the former abandoned his losing bid for the GOP Senate nomination and opted to run as an independent. The race remains a Toss-Up in the Rasmussen Reports Election 2010 Balance of Power summary.

Florida Democrats will pick their nominee in less than two weeks – on August 24 – and Crist’s campaign is hoping to draw support from Democrats unhappy with whichever candidate wins.
