Quinnipiac: Meek, McCollum lead
Both Bill McCollum and Kendrick Meek have struck back against their respective challengers Rick Scott and Jeff Greene. Meek has campaigned hard with Bill Clinton, while McCollum has done different things depending on whom you ask. Regardless though, Quinnipiac shows both candidates on top as the Florida primary nears.
Why I favor Rubio to win, despite it all
Some may have questioned why, in my new Senate projection, I had Florida at a 55% chance to win for Republican Marco Rubio, when much of the polling has shown newly minted independent Charlie Crist with tiny leads. It’s because I saw this new poll from Mason Dixon which not only covered the primary the Democrats are holding, but the consequences of that primary on | Read More »

Mason-Dixon: Rubio ahead, if Meek’s in.
OK, I’m no Lord [Pollington] [Oops!], but let’s unpack the Mason-Dixon poll for FL-SEN – which is bad news for Charlie Crist, and seriously bad news for the Democratic party of Florida that everybody expects Crist to join, just as soon as he can manage. Below are the three major match-ups: If the race is Marco Rubio for the GOP, Kendrick Meek for the Democrats, | Read More »
I’m Still Perturbed by This
The Bill McCollum campaign in Florida is lamely trying to deny they had anything to do with that stupid lawsuit against Rick Scott. They’ve also decided that because I am defending Scott in this that I must be a shill for Scott. Were I shilling for Scott, given my track record, I would be endorsing the guy. I am not and that is not the | Read More »
Marco Rubio takes Harry Reid to task for Reid’s latest racist slur
Harry Reid once again demonstrates that it is OK to be a racial bigot, so long as you are a leftwing racial bigot. “I don’t know how anyone of Hispanic heritage could be a Republican, OK? Do I need to say more?” — Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV), August 10, 2010 Earlier this year we learned that, in 2008, Reid suggested that Obama’s success | Read More »
Battleground Senate Poll
From Unlikely Voter: In an open and credited aping of the Greenberg Quinlan Rosner House battleground polls, Public Opinion Strategies has conducted a massive Senate battleground poll. Politico has for us the summary and 150 pages of gory, numerical details. I’m going to see what sense I can make of it.

Rasmussen: Meek must be sunk…
…if the Democrats want to keep the R from the seat. If Meek gets the nomination, Marco Rubio wins; if Greene gets it, Crist picks up enough votes to make the race competitive. And, of course, if Crist wins he’ll then finish the project of becoming a Democrat. That was Arlen Specter’s mistake, you see: openly turning your coat will strike too many people as | Read More »
The Bill McCollum Campaign Looks Desperate and Dead to Integrity
“Here we have the Attorney General of Florida abusing his office to destroy a company all to help his standing in the polls.” Holy cow. I never would have thought I’d see Bill McCollum stoop to cheap political tricks to try to boost his poll numbers. Short of putting a dead girl or live boy in Rick Scott’s trunk, I don’t think McCollum could have | Read More »
Is Karen Diebel Really A Big Taxer?
I haven’t really jumped into FL-24 race other than to raise some concerns I had with Karen Diebel that everyone assures me are actually not big issues. But one thing that has jumped out at me is some of the attacks on Diebel about her voting for tax increases on the Winter Park City Council in Florida. Here are some of the tax increases she’s | Read More »
Rick Scott Continues to Lead Bill McCollum in Florida
The gubernatorial race in Florida continues to surprise me. Bill McCollum, the unquestionably conservative Attorney General and former congressman who played a part in Bill Clinton’s impeachment, is losing to a novice politician and former hospital CEO. With just three weeks until Election Day, and early voting beginning next week, Scott is beating McCollum in every demographic and geographic category of likely GOP voters, said | Read More »
Daylight in the Florida Primaries
From Unlikely voter: Florida is a large and aggressively contested state. It, of all states, demands the clarity of traditional horserace polling. We have been denied that opportunity yet, though, because the Republicans still need a candidate for Governor and the Democrats still need a candidate for Senate. Quinnpiac’s poll suggests we may get answers soon, as late entering political novices Rick Scott and Jeff | Read More »

Florida Senate Update
We have a pair of polls to look at updating us on the Florida Senate race, a general election carpet bomb from Rasmussen, and a peek at the race between the Democrats in the primary from PPP. Unfortunately, what we don’t have is any clarity.
Rubio battles back
For a while the polling of the Florida Senate race had many people thinking that Charlie Crist, newly minted Independent, was running away with it. I disagreed and assumed his bump in the polls was driven by heavy coverage of his party switch and of his oil spill inspections. Rasmussen’s latest just might bear that out as Marco Rubio takes a fresh lead.
Pensacola Beach closed due to Obamaspill.
Heckuva job there, Barry. A popular section of Pensacola Beach has been closed because of oil that washed ashore there. Government officials closed about a quarter-mile section of Casino Beach on Thursday. Thick pools of oil washed ashore there Wednesday. Via Gateway Pundit, via Instapundit. But never fear: the White House in on the case!
