Rasmussen moves Florida Senate race from toss-up to leaning GOPby 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.
