Now here is a bit of good news. Conservative Marco Rubio now polls slightly ahead of ex Governor and RINO Charlie Crist. Even better news is that Rubio beats the Democrat in a general election match up.
The NRSC were damn fools not to have hitched their wagon to Rubio’s star. Instead they went with Charlie Crist very early on simply because they thought he was popular. Now they are set to waste a truck load of money supporting a RINO that is oh so out of vogue these days.
Expect Rubio's lead to grow further in the coming days. One of the things working in Rubio's favor has been Charlie Crist's support of Obama's stimulus plan. Given how this has cost Crist, it is surprising that Crist is scheduled to meet with Obama again this Thursday. This will sink Crist for good. Get ready for a YouTube moment.
Former State House Speaker Marco Rubio has squeaked past Gov. Charlie Crist in the race for the Republican U.S. Senate nomination, leading 47 - 44 percent and topping Gov. Crist on trust, values and conservative credentials, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today.
Rubio beats the leading Democrat, South Florida Congressman Kendrick Meek, 44 - 35 percent in a general election matchup, the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University poll finds. Crist leads Meek 48 - 36 percent.
President Barack Obama is under water in Florida as voters disapprove 49 - 45 percent of his job performance, down from a 48 - 46 percent approval rating October 21.
Rubio’s lead over Crist in the horse race represents a major reversal from October when the Governor led 50 - 35 percent; from August’s 55 - 26 percent Crist lead and from June’s lead of 54 - 23 percent.
