Three polls give Rubio double-digit lead in Senate race
by George Bennett | September 30th, 2010
A Quinnipiac University poll released this morning shows Republican Marco Rubio riding voter anger and anti-Obama sentiment to a 13-point lead
over indie Gov. Charlie Crist in Florida’s Senate race with Democrat Kendrick Meek a distant third.
The results are similar to a CNN/Time poll released late Wednesday that shows Rubio leading Crist by 11 points and a Rasmussen poll released Wednesday that also has Rubio up by 11.
Quinnipiac’s Sept. 23-28 poll of 1,151 likely voters (margin of error: 2.9 percent) shows voters prefer a Senator who will oppose President Obama’s policies by a 53-to-41 percent margin and prefer Republicans to control the Senate by a 47-to-38 percent margin. Forty-eight percent of voters call themselves “angry” at the federal government and another 29 percent “dissatisfied.”
