TAMPA - A new poll indicates that no-party candidate Gov. Charlie Crist has faded in the state's three-way Senate race, allowing Republican Marco Rubio to extend his lead.
Meanwhile, Democrat Kendrick Meek, in third place, has gained on Crist.
The change apparently happened because of Democrats swinging toward Meek and independent voters moving toward Meek and Rubio all of them moving away from Crist, according to the Mason-Dixon Polling & Research survey

Personally, I want Crist to come in a distant second, as well as Mircowsky in Alaska.
As despicable as these two creeps are, I still take even more joy in watching Democrats come in 3rd.
All we need is Kassel to mount a write-in campaign in Delaware to complete the trifecta.
HE HE HE...
I have a home in Florida and while its common fo the rest of the country to laugh at the doings here its important to point out a few facts. Rubio was a big time underdog according to the elites, RNC scum and the RSNC, led by that slime Cornyn. They showered prasie on Crist and totally ignored..and some cases insulted him. The conservatives took control of their party, ran the RINOS out..mostly, sent Steele and his toetapping consutants out..got behind Rubio and thats that!
This war isnt over till the RATS and the RINOS are defeated ..and possibly put on trial. But it doesnt end there...we need to contend with the media...go after the judges and so forth. It will take time but the tidal wave is with us!
ooops....insulted him means Rubio
The only real conservative in this race is Alexander Snitker. Rubio is crook and will spend other people’s money like there is no tomorrow.
Charlie didn’t really lose the Republican primary.
He dropped out because he was trailing badly.
I figure he’ll see the handwriting on the wall, and find an excuse to drop out again.
Charlie is in it for himself, and I don’t think his fragile ego could handle losing at the ballot box.
I just read earlier about Charlie’s curse on Florida rural home owners. The legislature wants to stop a Septic Tank inspection statute and Charlie is saying screw the residents and bending over for the Enviromentalists and Clean Water enviros.
Expect Gov. Crist to drop out soon, and throw his support to Mr. Meek.
The purpose of his campaign was to throw a stink bomb at Mr. Rubio’s effort, since its failing, little reason for the governor to carry on.
I am so happy to see Crist the Skunk get his just deserts.
These RINO third party/write-in runs only hurt the DEMOCRAT. I hope Castle runs.
Rubio winning the senate seat will be sweet indeed.
Damn! This pretty much puts a lock on Crist getting most of the psycho-communist, self-hating Jew vote. Now if Debbie Vasserman-Schultz endorses Crist, Rubio could be in trouble.
Third! The Florida voters must tell Crist that his brand is ruined, to take what little game he's got left out of public service forever.
If Meeks beats him, Crist will never run so much as even state-wide again because he'll never be able to convince top-flight campaign people to sign up. That's how it works.
23% of voters will vote for MEEKS??? He is really a dumb bag of rocks.
Wow - Rasmussen was already showing this sort of lead, so if MD has widened this much, Rasmussen may next have Rubio over the magick 50%.
So far this morning I’ve seen a Crist Ad (twice) attacking both Rubio and Meek on ethical grounds as well as a positive Ad by Meek traveling on a air boat in the everglades as he states what he stands for...
That is Meek’s propblem. We know what he stands for. Death, more taxes, and the peasantry being owned by the government.
You guys wanted McCullan out and Scott in (even though he had the hospital scandal)
McCullan would have been the Governor of Florida, but you “purist” have won, and now MY state looks like we will suffer with a Democrat Governor..
ps..I will hold my nose and vote for Scott. I never missed a vote on my adult life
I am so PO’d at some of the purist on this board, who can;t see the forest for the trees...This election has to do with redistricting..get it?
you ignorant pos....YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHO I VOTED FOR. I supported McCullan. And damn right Im happy....thanks for the laugh joker!
Charlie Crist is a waste of space. I would rather Meek won that race than Crist. Besides, Crist should be happy with a loss. He’ll be able to come out of the closet and live his life publicly as he truly is.
Third! The Florida voters must tell Crist that his brand is ruined, to take what little game he's got left out of public service forever.That's beyond silly. It's unlikely Crist will run for anything again after he loses, either way. And if he does, it would only be after considerable private polling shows he has a real shot, regardless of whether he comes in 2nd or 3rd in this race.
Umm, Scott is ahead in the polls.
Crist is trying to portray himself as a unifying outsider, and it’s not working.
Look for crist to finally come “out” after he loses in a new tell all book.
You are happy Sink will be the next Governor of Florida...I don’t get it.
How can you be HAPPY!
Figures that Crist would be going down. Thanks Ravi.
This reminds me of those games you played as kids, when someone’s a clear winner - and you say, ‘let’s play for second!’
Good news that ‘the opportunist’ (as Marco Rubio calls him) Crist is sinking!
He’s revealing himself as a Demonrat, not an Independent, and voters are realizing his ‘true color’ is BLUE!
