And this is with polling the Libertarian candidate.  I think this one might be moving to "leans R" shortly.

I think if Meek wins the primary tonight (which by all accounts he will), I'll be flipping this one from I to R. Crist really needs a lot of the people who will be supporting Meek in the general to win (coughblackscough). If Greene could have pulled through the primary, Crist would have nabbed an awful lot of them.

now obviously I dont like this poll, and in no way am I trying to discredit it, but the last PPP poll was registered voters, this is likely voters. That, plus the high profile democrat primary, could be a reason for these results.

If the election was today, Rubio would win with 40% of the vote. 60% of Floridians wouldn't have voted for Rubio. Ah, democracy at its finest.

In a two-way race Rubio would have slaughtered both Greene and Meek.

Even less people want the other two so whats the issue? Our system of voting isn't perfect but it is much better than the crap European counties use.

Using registered voters at this point would reak of serious Pro-Dem bias. At this point Likely voters is extremely more accurate then Likely voters six months ago (an old complaint against Rassy) and after labor day, any poll not using "likely" voters should be taken with a grain of salt. So basically knowing that fact, calls those previous polls into question and adds weight to this one. Tongue

Mason Dixon, Rassy and now PPP all agree on Florida. PPP has also "come to Rassy" in PA, and MO as well.

It seems to me that PPP has done a good job in projecting Rubio's support (I expect him to end up with 41% of the vote), but continues to overestimate support for Crist (I expect him to receive 29%) and underestimate support for Meek (I expect him to get 28%).  Snitker (the Libertarian candidate) may well get 2% of the vote.

Uh, it's a poll. It shows where things stand currently. They aren't trying to predict the final vote totals when the election is months away still.

FPTP sucks, I have no idea why you are defending it.

I think he's referring to proportional representation.

In that case, Democracy wouldn't work anywhere where there were 3 major candidates.

Right because there are no IRV or runoff type systems.
