Poll: Independent Crist Retains Lead in Florida Senate Race

From the Miami Herald:

Charlie Crist’s declaration of independence is paying off — so far.

The governor narrowly leads Florida’s topsy-turvy U.S. Senate race, despite nearly half of the voters saying he made a “purely political” decision to bolt the GOP and run as an independent candidate in the Nov. 2 general election, a new St. Petersburg Times/Miami Herald/Bay News 9 poll finds.

Of the registered voters surveyed, 30 percent were for Crist, 27 percent for Republican Marco Rubio and 15 percent for Democratic front-runner Kendrick Meek.

The race remains volatile: Crist’s lead over Rubio is within the poll’s four-percentage-point margin of error, and nearly one out of four voters are undecided.

    Good job Crist. Hopefully as a senator he will push for something like Prop 14, not only in Florida but nationally as well.

    I don’t think the Green Party will support Crist. That would require too much intelligence, cmpared to what most greens have.
