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. That tan of his is just the color change before char.The Rubio campaign notes:
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. But fully half don’t know enough about him to have an opinion. Filling in that blank slate for that half of GOP voters – positively by Rubio and negatively by Crist – will decide the nomination.

Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES “On abortion, the Democrats are extremists.” Every Republican and conservative in America knows the media’s double standards when it comes to asking hard questions. It was especially evident this week in the difference between the Democrat and Republican debates. And it is the most evident in how the media deal with abortion. Sen. Rubio takes them apart over it. | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES What a glum, drab debate. ABC clearly tried to make all the candidates look bad, and the bad blood between the candidates left over from Iowa meant that they just did not care about showing any level of solidarity against the media, as they often do. Christie successfully tore down Marco Rubio for the first hour of the debate, | Read More »
