No way that Rubio would be ahead in this scenario, anywhere other that the mind of Rasmussen.

I am waiting to see where that monday Rubio's campaign put some of their campaign money. Perhaps it was spent at another lesbian, bondage strip club.

PPP, a dem pollster, last month had similar results and i believe you didn't have boo to say then about the pollster. Wonder why?

I find it amusing that there has been a -11 point swing in Obama's approval rating in Florida in 6 days according to Rasmussen. What happened in the past 6 days?

PPP ans Kos both had pretty similar results in this 3way race. I don't see what the problem is here.

Didn't you just say that you trusted rasmussen on Obamas approval numbers more than the left leaning Quinnipiac? I'll go way out on a limb and say that you trusted ras only because they had a higher approval for Obama on that day that Quinnipiac did.

I expect Crist to formally announce his dropping out of the Republican primary to run as an independent.

Crist won't win, but he certainly gives the Dems a great shot at picking up this seat now. This will be a hell of a race to watch.

Hopefully Crist will simply drop out of the Republican primary and wait his turn, which will be 2012 against Nelson. He'd win in a landslide. I'd say theres a less than 10% chance of that happening at this point but it's the ideal scenario in my eyes.

Are you kidding? Crist will win a 3-way race. Democrats will cross over to help him.

Crist will be focused on trashing the GOP, as that's where most his easy votes will come from. Why wouldn't a reasonable Democrat, whose candidate has no chance of winning, not want to help him be victorious in that pursuit? This Rubio thing is going to allow Crist to help Democrats destroy the GOP in Florida. Any Democrat that thinks this might be a pick up is being extremely short-sighted, as allowing an exiled-GOP trash the GOP is far more politically advantageous.

And now Rubio is under FBI investigation... in a week the polls will be affected.

i don't know Jamesia. The reps had a chance of winning this seat with Crist. They might just hand it over to the Dems. i would like to see what polls look like in a week or two since Rubio's financial scandal hit.

Oh, I'm sure Rubio will bleed voters. I just think they'll turn to Crist rather than Meek. I doubt enough to help Crist win the GOP nomination, but probably enough to win a 3-way race.
