Chiles is going to screw it up for the Democrats to win the governors race. THis year is not a time to be playing the "Third party" game for the Dems.

Its interesting that the libies are taunting the fact that the right-leaning independent is beating the Tea party supported Republican. Where is their candidate? Oh yeah, irrelevant since most of the country is basically rejecting their far-left ideology.

I'm not suggesting this, but it almost seems like Rick Scott was a plant by the Dems. McCollum was doing great in polls against Sink until Scott got into the race. And then of course, Chile entered, and he's probably only doing well because enough people are already going for Chris. So we will have to see if Christ fever ever calms down and how that will affect Chiles and the Republican nominee.

"Its interesting that the libies are taunting the fact that the right-leaning independent is beating the Tea party supported Republican."

It is even more interesting that the right-leaning independent is trying to get close to a liberal Democratic president and shifting his policy positions to the left to help him win. And guess what? It is seems to be working, or at the very least not hurting.

Crist winning is almost as good as a Democrat winning. He will vote like a typical centrist Democrat, which is perfect for Florida.

William,

Crist knows it will be tougher to garner Republican votes away from the much stronger Rubio than it will Democratic votes away from the much weaker Greene or Meek. Thus, he will of course feign a liking to Obama and his policies. For instance, originally, when running for the GOP primary, he was adamantly against Obamacare. Now, as an indie, he is for it.

He is a typical, Obama-style politician who will say whatever it takes to get elected. His overall ideology is MUCH closer to the GOP than the current democratic party which has been hijacked by the far-left crazies. If you think he would have voted for ObamaCare, Finreg, or any other crappy piece of Reids bills, you've been had.

I still think Rubio wins this by high single digits. Once people start asking how he would vote, whom he would caucus with, etc. he will lose the other voters. Then there is the huge money disadvantage.

As long as we're bringing up the issue of conspiracy theories

Are you also "not suggesting but seems like":
1. Chiles is a GOP plant? He's negatively impacting Sink's chances.

2. And then there's Greene. He must be a Dem or Crist 11 dimensional chess plant too, to take out Meek and insure that Crist wins (since Dems have 0 allegiance to this former Republican candidate

Tinfoil hat time at pollster.com I guess :-)
