Charlie Crist may be well tanned, but he cannot be well rested. After the Chamber of Commerce dropped a nuke into the race this past weekend by leaking polling results showing Rubio has cut significantly into Charlie Crist’s lead, we have a new public poll.Governor Charlie Crist of Florida, running in a Republican Primary against Florida’s former Speaker of the House, is looking to go the way of Dede Scozzafava.

Gov. Charlie Crist’s lead over former state house speaker Marco Rubio in the 2010 Republican U.S. Senate primary has been cut in half from 55 – 26 percent to 50 – 35 percent…Among Republicans, 44 percent view Rubio favorably, 3 percent unfavorably, up from 24 – 6 percent August 19.

I mean, the entire meaning of the phrase was intended to convey that we would never vote for Trump, at any time, for any reason. It’s rather unambiguous, the word | Read More »
