Rubio camp: our polling has Meek even or ahead of Crist

by George Bennett | October 28th, 2010

Internal tracking by Republican Marco Rubio’s campaign shows Democrat Kendrick Meek and independent Charlie Crist “in a statistical dead heat,” Rubio consultant Todd Harris said tonight in trying to knock down speculation that Crist can beat Rubio if Meek drops out.

Among those who have already voted, Harris said, the Rubio campaign’s in-house polling shows Meek with a 28-to-24 percent lead over Crist. (That suggests Rubio is drawing about 48 percent from early and absentee voters.)

Reacting to a report that former President Clinton tried to get Meek to drop out and endorse Crist to defeat Rubio, Harris said: “Charlie Crist truly will say and do anything to get elected and hold on to power. Secret deals to trade away principles for power is already the problem in Washington, it’s not the solution. This is simply politics as usual which is exactly what voters across the country are emphatically rejecting this election.”

    Rubio folks are now very worried.

    They lose a one on one race.

    Nice try T-partiers. Your polls reflect what you would like them to reflect but the reality is that Democrats realize that sometimes you have to cross party lines to achieve the greater good.

    And just where do the six people you polled live?? Texas???

    Crist for Senate!!

    I am a Democrat who has seen the light.

    Meek is a good man, but has no chance to beat Moco Rubio, the evil one.

    of course your polling would say that you feel Crist knocking on your doorstep..

  6. NoneyaBiz Says:

    I am a staunch Democrat. And I already voted for Charlie Crist!
