Rasmussen: Rubio 50%, Crisp 30%
Rasmussen ^

Posted on 10/29/2010 2:37:21 PM PDT by Chet 99

Republican Marco Rubio now enjoys a 20-point advantage over Independent candidate Charlie Crist in the U.S. Senate race in Florida, with Democratic Congressman Kendrick Meek still running third.

A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in the Sunshine State finds Rubio picking up 50% of the vote, while Crist, Florida's current GOP governor, receives 30% support. Meek picks up 16% support, his worst showing since early July. One percent (1%) prefers some other candidate, and another three percent (3%) are still undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

This race remains Solid Republican in the Rasmussen Reports Election 2010 Senate Balance of Power rankings. Earlier last week, Rubio held a 43% to 32% lead over Crist, with Meek earning 20% support.

According to RCP, there is a recent Sunshine State News Poll that also states Rubio is up +20. So much for the polls that show only a +7 lead. Go Rubio!

Charlie Crist: the worst of the worst. THE definition of a narcissistic politcian willing to do and/or say anything, vote for anything, pander to anyone, anywhere....it’s ALL about Charlie.

“Meek picks up 16% support, his worst showing since early July.”

Maybe because he is both stupid and a bad politician.

My evidence is from his website:

1. He supports cap and trade,

2. He openly supports cap and trade by the name “cap and trade,” not hiding it under a “green” disguise like the others do,

3. He thinks cap and trade has something to do with the importation of petroleum to America.

By revealing himself to be anything but conservative, I would say he has completely destroyed his political career.

Good riddance.

If there’s any justice in the world.....Charlie and any Republican who supported his candidacy after he bolted the party should be blackballed from Florida politics forever. The word should be put out in Tallahassee. No one that worked for Crist should ever work in that town again. They’ve burned bridges on both sides of the aisle now.

I wonder how Crisp would have done if he made it clear he was still a Republican (albeit a RINO) and would caucus as such. Murkowski has done this and has stayed in the hunt. Crisp, on the other hand, has made it more or less clear to anyone paying attention that he would call himself ‘independent’ but caucus with the Democrats.

A tale of greedy person. If he just wait until Ben Nelson’s term expires in 2012, he might be elected senator from FL. I really doubt FL will go 0bama again next time, so his anti-coattail might help whoever Republican candidate that year.

I have been predicting Rubio will hit 50%. With this poll, I have to wonder what will happen with Crist’s support. Spoiler independents almost always poll much higher than their actual vote.

I said the final would be Rubio 50%, Meeks 30%, and Crist 20%. Meeks has lived up to his name, and seems unable to even get all of the hard-core progressives into his camp. Meanwhile, some of Crist’s moderate Republican vote may shift to the perceived winner, and some may not vote.

I now think Rubio will hit close to 55% in the actual election.

The really scary part is that if he would have taken his loss like a man and waited, the GOP would have all but guaranteed him a Senate seat in the next election.

Or at least run for Pres. as a Democrat and get every single delegate in the country.

I now want Meeks to finish ahead of Crist. I guess that would be greedy to hope for but watching him finish third would be beautiful.

Charlie Crist's sport was baseball, and he is definitely a switch-hitter.

You know what a switch hitter does, right? He swings from both sides of the plate.

Crist gift-wrapped Florida for McQueeg with his endorsement in 2008. I’m fairly certain Romney still hates him for it. I know I do.

I am sorry that Crisp won’t come in third.

Meek has been a person of integrity.

The best news about this poll, if the GOP exploits it, will be to dampen African American turnout, which will doom Alex Sink.

I thought from 7 pm last night that Crisp knew he was going to lose, and he was so pissed at BO and Clinton for not pulling off the stinky deal that he leaked the story to crush Sink’s remaining hope - thus severely wounding BO for 2012.

Crisp: if I am going down, I am taking the kitchen Sink with me.

Amen. We don’t need to re-fight 2008, but if Romney had been the nominee instead of McCain, when the financial disaster hit, Romney would have been able to run against Washington, rather than be a part of it. His economic bona fides would also have been superior to McCain, for sure. McCain, notwithstanding his many attributes, cannot string 3 coherent sentences together and his debate performances were a disaster.

Yeah my first thought too but then my wife just pointed out that a QB spends must of the game with his hands near the Center's crotch and it all fell into place then...

(OK, that last bit was an unfortunate turn of phrase on my part...)

If there’s one thing I’ve learned over the years, it’s that these talentless government hacks never go away, because they cannot survive in the private sector.

Charlie will have to reinvent himself. Maybe get caught in a bathhouse, divorce his beard and, after a brief stint relacing Kathleen Parker in the role of the conservative chick on CNN’s reality show “Spitzer/Whoever”, run for Florida’s 18th Congressional District (which includes Key West).

He’s one thing you can bet he’ll never do: Get a real job.
