Conservatives worship Rasmussen, so it'll be interesting to see if they trash this poll since it doesn't put their darling Rubio on top.

Florida Senate: Crist 38%, Rubio 34%, Meek 17%

I am not sure Meek has a real chance in Fla, I think he will do much better than this poll, after all, this is Rasmussen. I suspect there will be large numbers of Dem voters opting for Crist, as least it would send a Moderate to the Senate. Although Fla is pretty Conservative, it's not really that right wing, certain areas, of course, but not all over.

Interesting how liberals acknowledge the veracity of Rasmussen when he indicates something in their favor while trashing him when he does not.

Can anyone way "hypocrisy"?

It works both ways, friend. Liberals are just taking after conservatives in that respect.

I would surely love to see Crist win as an independent the way Lieberman won as an independent: By getting opposition party votes, in this case, Democrat.

Whats good for Crist is that all those who have not lost their minds in the GOP will likely choose him over Rubio

It was in-your-face post, however I didn't see him acknowledge the veracity of Rasmussen.

I agree. I don't really like any of them (Rubio, Crist, or Meek), but combined with his name-recognition, Crist can easily position himself as the sensible moderate, and I bet he'll win.

Well, part of why some go after Rasmussen is his polls don't match up to others out there. This one is fairly close to others, Quinnipiac also has Crist ahead. The main difference is Meek does worse in the Rasmussen poll.

A. Not your friend.

B. Perfect example of hypocrisy.

Just tout it as proof of their position. Kind of "in your face".
