Posted on 11/20/2008 4:40:52 PM PST by rabscuttle385
Sen. Mel Martinez (R-Fla.) could be ripe for a challenge for his seat in 2010, according to a new Quinnipiac University poll.
Only 36 percent of voters in the survey said Martinez deserves a second term. More voters 38 percent say that he doesnt, and 26 percent are not sure. When asked whom they would vote for if the election were held today, 40 percent said they would support the Democratic candidate and 36 percent said they would back Martinez.

I wont lift a finger to help a Rino ever again.
Sen Martinez would have been polling better about now, if he hadn’t lied to his voters about immigration before he won his seat. Those speeches have strangely disappeared from his web site. Guess what he said before and after his election ... ^_^
An anti-immigration Democrat could take the seat.
He is only good at taking up space.
They won’t let any one in to compete with him.
I’m in Florida, and I cannot wait to express my thoughts on RINO’s, such as this loser, at the ballot box!
Mel is doomed in the primary. Of course, the RPoF will see to it that he gets through to the general, only to go down in flames.
If we make any gains in other areas....I say good riddance.
It would be better if we got rid of him in the primaries.
“Mel is doomed in the primary.”
Oh, I hope so.
Please enlighten me. I don’t live in FL.
I vote in Florida... and WILL NOT vote for Mel.
(Unless he pays me $300,000 or more.)
Kind of like when Ton Delay ran republican Henry Bonilla out of office in Texas. Henry was the GOP's token mexican
Bush should have NEVER insisted mel be the nominee to begin with.
Could care less if he loses.
He’s a total RINO. That said, the candidates who ran against him were people who had a rather limited appeal. They were mostly folks from the northern part of the state, which is a low-population area in general, who had been in state government but didn’t really have a lot of campaign experience and had no appeal in the cities.
I hope we get a decent conservative here who can appeal to the cities. The problem is that the GOP establishment doesn’t promote or encourage people like that.
The Republican party at national and state level is run by RINOs and that is why the party is in the shape it is.
Martinez will be backed by these RINOs and they will stifle any attempt to unseat him in a primary. That is why we have Specters, Hagels, Warners, Snowes and Grahams.
Mel’s RINO ways in general and his support for shamnesty in particular are what should doom him. Mel cannot take comfort in the GOP turnout and figure he only needs to get a small percentage swing. Mel and McCain were totally uninspiring and if not for Sarah, there would have been no grassroots effort.
What a stereotypical liberal thing to say.
Are other Cuban politicians as strident in their support of illegal immigration and amnesty?
