Poll: Marco Rubio Gaining Ground in FL Senate Race

Flip-flopper Charlie Crist and far-leftist Kendrick Meek are now in a race for second place in the Florida Senate race. That according to a new poll from Mason-Dixon. Conservative Marco Rubio is building on his lead and remains on the path to victory.

A statewide poll released Saturday night shows Republican Marco Rubio building on his lead over independent challenger Charlie Crist, while Democrat Kendrick Meek appears to be closing in on Crist in the closely-watched contest.

Rubio is favored by 40 percent of likely voters, up from 38 percent last month; Crist’s support has dwindled to 28 percent from 33 percent, according to the Mason-Dixon Research & Associates survey of 625 likely Florida voters. The margin of error is plus/minus 4 percentage points.

The poll found that Meek is gaining on Crist, with his support rising sharply to 23 percent of likely voters, up from 18 percent. Nine percent are undecided.

Why is Crist fading? Democrats are abandoning him for Meek, while Independents are shifting to Rubio and Meek.

To have 40 percent support “in a three-way race is a very strong position to hold,” said Coker.

“Rubio, in fact, only needs to gain 2-3 points to wrap up the race,” he said. “The only way Rubio could lose is if the support for Crist or Meek dropped under 15 percent. That could happen, but it would require an almost total abandonment by Democrats from Crist to Meek, or vice-versa.”

The poll surveyed likely voters — a more reliable base than registered voters.

This is obviously good news but the race isn’t over yet. Now isn’t the time to stay home or turn down the heat. You can help Rubio here.

    My coder is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on various websites for about a year and am anxious about switching to another platform. I have heard excellent things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress content into it? Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!

    I’m not sure exactly why but this site is loading very slow for me. Is anyone else having this problem or is it a issue on my end? I’ll check back later and see if the problem still exists.


  1. […] So why is Crist’s poll numbers falling?Democrats who once said they supported Crist are now turning to Meek. It is not as though the Democrat machine can turn their backs on Meek in this election for a Republican turned so-called independent. They already played and lost that game with Specter in Pennsylvania. Also, the independents are flocking to Rubio and Meek as well. Charlie Crist is learning a rim reality of running as an independent out of political expediency. Crist neither has a party or a voting constituency. Maybe because Crist does not have a message either, except trying to hand on to political power when the voters had said no. […]
