Well how is this for Tea Party Power? Marco Rubio has completely erased Charlie Crist’s lead in the polls; the two are now tied at 43%.
A new poll has found that Florida Governor Charlie Crist's campaign for the U.S. Senate is currently in deep trouble. The new Rasmussen poll of likely GOP voters found Crist and his Republican opponent, Marco Rubio, are tied with 43 percent of the vote. This is a huge swing from just a few months ago when most experts believed Crist would win in a landslide.
While Crist's numbers have been in an almost free fall, Rubio's name recognition amongst Republicans has rapidly grown. The new poll found 34 percent of GOP voters now view Rubio "very favorably." In the same poll in August, Rubio's "very favorable" ratings were at 18 percent.
On the flip side, Crist's numbers have fallen off a cliff. Only 19 percent of likely GOP voters have a "very favorable" opinion of the governor. According to Rasmussen, that's a double-digit decline since August.
Charlie Crist’s very early support for Obama’s failed stimulus should have made him completely unacceptable to the NRSC. Instead they endorsed Crist very early over Rubio. Rubio is everything the GOP says it is trying to attract. Rubio is both young and Hispanic, plus he is a real honest to goodness conservative.
Hopefully, Rubio will sink Crist early so that we can avoid all the complications that came with sinking Scozzafava at the last minute.
