Rasmussen moves Florida Senate race from toss-up to leaning GOP

by George Bennett | August 26th, 2010

Republican Marco Rubio holds a 40-to-30 percent lead over indie Gov. Charlie Crist in Florida’s Senate race in a new Rasmussen poll, leading the survey firm to move Florida from “toss-up” to “leans Republican” in its Senate rankings.

Democrat Kendrick Meek gets 21 percent in the new Rasmussen poll of 750 likely voters, which was taken Wednesday and has a 4 percent margin of error.

Crist gets a 52 percent approval rating for his handling of gubernatorial duties in the poll. President Obama’s approval rating is 46 percent, with 55 percent disapproving, says Rasmussen.

    Probably good to be the dog at this point. Bullseye on the front runner.

  5. Sam Says:

    If Crist wins, I think he will try to paint himself as a maverick. Honestly not sure how he would caucus, but he would probably have a voting record similar to Collins and Snowe.

    Big surprise coming from the most conservative polling group.
    Rasmussen in BUNK.
    Marco Rubio is Evil Personified.
    Anybody ever seen Damien the Omen?

    I still like Independent Charlie no matter what they say or write about him. He’s my guy! I dont like or trust Rubio and never will. Its kinda like the feeling I have for b. obama.
