Scott only down 4 at this stage is actually great news. He’s had horrible numbers and will have a giant war chest to hammer Crist and brag about the Florida economic growth.

Of course Dems love Crist! What's not to love in a liar, fraudster, turncoat? If there is any sexual misconduct, he is a shoo in.

If Scott hadn't appointed that witch Corey to attack Zimm, he'd have more cred.

Christ is libtard, clearly.

I can’t believe that anyone who calls themselves Americans would vote for someone who changes his politics like he changes his socks. Whichever Way The Wind Blows Charlie. The perfect DemocRAT.

This would be the same Miami Herald that had to sell its headquarters on Bisacayne Bay and has a readership of about 25.

They literally cant give the paper away.

Is Crist running in the D primary, or as an independent like his Senate flop?

America would be better off if we rid ourselves of at least 7 of the 57 states.

Well, a primary would between Crist and Nelson would technically be an idiot contest, tough call.

Besides the Zimmerman incident and I don't know the details on how involved he was in putting Corey in charge of the case, Scott has done what a Governor is supposed to do, which is shut up , leave the citizenry alone, don't raise taxes, and create a climate conducive for business.

This state was hit hard by the recession, Scott hasn't made it any worse.

He's got no problem if his opponent is that orange faggot Crist.

If your not a Floridian you might not know ...

1) The pubbies and Scott have a motor vehicle fee roll back taking effect in mid-2014. They show that Crist and the Dems over increased back five years ago.

2) I forgot but there was other great news that the media keep silence on two weeks ago, that will greatly benefit Scott in 2014.

4 points isn’t that big of a lead. Especially this far out. I would think Scott could turn that around rather easily with a decent campaign. I don’t know that much about local politics in Florida though, to be honest.

Even my Democrat neighbors told me they cannot stand Charlie Crist. They have come to see something is very wrong with Obama too. When Rick Scott ran here for Governor, he bombarded us with flyers in the mail continuously. He campaigned very hard nonstop. Charlie will have money from Morgan and Morgan ambulance chasers who campaigned for Obama in the last election. I cannot imagine Charlie Crist winning down here since he cannot make up his mind who he is and many down in Florida do not trust him. Quinnepac poll is liberal from all I have heard.

“Sorry, I meant to say that pyscho demented orange faggot Crist.”

Crist and Boner must go to the same tanning salon, but Boner is a little more pasty because of his smoking!

His new “base” could easily be dissuaded by running ads of Crist’s speeches, clips of his own old ads, etc. from the 2010 primary wherein he claims to be the true conservative in the race, and all of his then new-found conservative positions.

Charlie Crist's support will turn out to be a mile wide and an inch deep.

This squirming, waffling chameleon of a man is an absolutely worthless career politician without an ounce of principle or core convictions, willing to change his stated position on any issue (and back again) whenever it's expedient.

Every Floridian who has followed this clown's career is aware of this fact, and I predict any electoral advantage he currently enjoys will evaporate, the closer he gets to an actual, "live" candidacy.

I did not know Nelson was running for governor: probably thinks Tallahassee will be more compatible to him as he ages. Like DC, isn’t Tallahassee full of liberals too?

Most Florida residents don't trust Charlie "Gay Boy" Crist worth a damn ...


"News Articles" like these are merely for political fund raising purposes ... desperately trying to GROW Crist's numbers.

or else a "gay-boi" deal between sweet Charlie and some "journalist boi-toy" ...




One of the BEST things that Rick Scott did was CANCEL that STUPID Obama-Union-Greed-Inspired "high-speed rail" for central Florida.

That was a boondoogle that would have eclipsed Boston's "Big Dig".

Horray ... Gov. Scott.

The liberal media and government employee union types hate Scott.

In our right to work state, that's an automatic extra ten points at the polls.

Popularity is a funny thing to try to poll.
While I don't like everything Scott has decided, I also don't detest the absolute majority of his decisions.Mostly when it counts, he decides as I expected him to do so.
He's not what I would consider a right wing conservative, but OTOH, he is also not a commie/socialist.

Crist is not someone anyone who lives year round in Florida truly wants to elect for ANY position, paid or not.
Certainly not for Governor.
