Meek is totally unknown outside his district. So it's not such a bad result at all. Frankly Christ shows real weakness by not even breaking 50% here. I agree that Christ can win this seat. however, I don't agree that Christ's win in the primary is assured, however; Rubio is the darling of the right. Christ is seen as a RINO. So his big problems are with his own base.

Well, Rubio is more popular with the core core of the base...but FL is not TX or AL...the GOP is not as wildly conservative in FL as in other places....plus Crist is a popular sitting goernor, he will win easily.

Pretty presumptuous to pencil Crist in for the Rpublicans. Rubio is building momentum...

Crist is under 50% approval in Florida. Which is strange to me...I thought he was quite popular there.
His willingness to work with Obama may have hurt him quite a bit with republicans.

Rubio I don't think can win a statewide election against Meek. If the "base" destroys Crist as they are trying to, I'd laugh for years to see Meek win this seat over Rubio.
