Fla. Poll Gives Rubio a Big Lead
WSJ Blogs Washington Wire
A new poll shows Florida’s Republican Senate candidate, Marco Rubio, with a double-digit lead over Gov. Charlie Crist, running as an independent.
According to a Sunshine State News Poll of 1,016 likely voters released this morning, Rubio the former state House speaker ahead by 14 points (43% for Rubio and 29% for Crist). The poll was conducted by Voter Survey Service, a division of Pennsylvania-based Susquehanna Polling and Research, and carries a three percentage point margin of error.
Since late August, following the media coverage of the Aug. 24 Florida primary, polls have put Rubio in the lead, but not so far ahead. On Wednesday, a CNN/Time poll of registered voters had Rubio and Crist running just about neck and neck, 36%-34%.
Crist, who switched from the GOP in the spring amid signs that Rubio would win the party’s primary, led the race for most of the summer. The governor, who released an ad this week touting his nonpartisan credentials, now might have a problem with independents. The Sunshine State poll says Crist is trailing among independents, with 38% going for Rubio and 36% for Crist.
Meanwhile, Kendrick Meek, the Democratic congressman seeking a promotion to senator, continues to lag behind at 23%, the poll found.
