According to Mason-Dixon which you said was the best Florida pollster ever.

Also a 15 point or whatever swing here seems kind of unlikely.

I did like Crist's last Rasmussen lead, but why does it seem like Ras' polls swing so violently. It's kinda crazy.  Crist went from leading independents by 12 to only by 3 in two weeks? But on the plus side, this poll does continue to show the deterioration of Meek.
Who knows...

The only candidate who has deteriorated is Crist, if the poll is accurate.  I guess people don't think that not refunding people's money is as principled and independent as you think it is.

Being up by 6 points as an Independent when you don't have overwhelming support from one of the parties is not a lead.

I suspect that like Schlesinger, Meeks will fade to around 10% as the general election draws near, and most of that fade will go to Crist  I also think that those undecideds who actually vote will break slightly more to Crist than to Rubio.  So I see this poll as indicating a slight advantage to Crist, but within the MoE, and outside the MoE if one assumes this poll is an outlier.

We won't know that until quite a while yet.

Is that the hissing of air flowing out of a balloon, I hear.


Come on Meek, its your move, drive that slimebag to third place. An ad with Bush, highlight his few Conservative positions, would do the trick and get Dems back in line.

The thought that Crist will get more GOP oriented votes than Meek will get Dem oriented ones, strikes me as well - implausible. Whatever.

It seems like Rubio will probably get low 40s. The numbers for Meeker and Crist will be more dynamic.

It's sad to think that so many Florida Democrats think there will be a substantive difference (from a progressive perspective) between having Crist or Rubio in the Senate.

There's certainly a difference between having Lieberman and a random partisan Democrat in the Senate.

This isn't too surprising. It will be hard for Crist to beat Rubio with the GOP behind him unless Meek drops out and makes Crist the de facto Democrat candidate.

Has Crist declared which party he will caucus with if he wins?

No, and he won't, since it automatically alienates a share of the voters he needs to win.
