Skip to comments....Libertarian Confuses Florida Gov Race, Quinnipiac...Finds; Voters Don't Trust Scott Or Crist
Posted on 07/23/2014 3:34:46 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper
Florida Republican Gov. Rick Scott trails former Gov. Charlie Crist, running as a Democrat, by a narrow 45 - 40 percent margin in a two-way race. When Libertarian candidate Adrian Wyllie is added to the mix, the race is too close to call, with 39 percent for Crist, 37 percent for Scott and 9 percent for Wyllie, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today.
This compares to a 48 - 38 percent Crist lead in a head-to-head matchup without Wyllie in an April 30 survey by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University.

This poll seems to indicate the libertarian HELPS the Republican.
For "Libertarian," read "Liberal." Period.
These clowns are very deliberately helping the Dems get elected and destroy America. Shun them. They are pure evil.
Work to re-elect Rick Scott. He may not be perfect but his Lib opponents are of the devil.
I KNOW Florida Freepers....or at least some of them......will vehemently disagree with me.....on this.
I’m a long time Floridian......and a life long Republic
I cannot vote for either Scott OR Crist!
Crist is a schmuck of the first order.
Scott not only signed off giving ILLEGALS in state tuition for college....
....his office rep refused to give me his position on ILLEGALS being brought in to states.....and whether he would allow our state used like this.
Her response was......He hasn’t made a statement on that yet!!!!!!!!!!!!
I voted for this guy......
I am his citizen constituent
I am.a tax paying Floridian
....and he couldn’t/wouldn’t answer the **** question!
Well, I guess I got my answer standing in the blazing hot son on the Pineda Overpass Saturday......
because Scott is letting them in.
I refuse to vote for the lesser of two evils......never again!
I’m not a bit happy with Scott. His only saving grace is the large amount of jobs opening up in FL. But his non-stance on illegals and blatant cronyism bothers me to no end. I haven’t yet decided if he’s worth keeping around.
However, anyone who tells me that if I don’t vote for him, I am getting Orange Crist elected can go urinate up a rope. Strategic voting is how we keep getting saddled with so-called “electable” jackwagons that stab conservatives in the back. I no longer vote against anyone. My vote needs to be earned, and not being “the other guy” doesn’t work with me.
What EricT said!!!!!!
Thank-you EricT.......you said that well!
Someone is going to be sworn after the election. Please don’t let it be Crist. This is an incumbent reelection, and no one on our side challenged Scott. He’s the only option. He’s clearly the better option on the race and will be 75% on our side. Watch the destruction of McCaullife in Va ignoring the law like Obamas . Crist will be worse.
Because voters are fed up .......
....I think they are sending a message to Scott about his illegal stand. ( or lack of one)
I stand with him!
crist is slimy as a remora.
I am in Florida and I agree 100% with everything you said. Also, in todays paper there is information about Scott funding “bicycle tourism” (Agenda 21) with a $100,000 study and $16 million next year for bicycle trails.
Yep, this will really jump start Florida’s tourism industry and provide jobs to boot. (sarc)
That statement painted the whole barn with one stroke of the brush. And applies equally to republicans like Charlie Crist and Rick Scott. Blinded by irrational hatred is no way to go through life.
Libertarians are about 15% of the voting public. No republican ever won without Libertarian votes. Jackwagons like you chase off Libertarians. Then whine when we vote for our parties candidate.
That is what happened in Florida. Learn to like losing. Because the stench of your RINO can no longer be kept out by nose holding.
Really? You can stay home in November but after almost losing our business, I'm thankful for what Scott has done to help us keep it. Our employees are thankful, too. Additionally, Florida's economy is doing better than most of the Country. Florida Economy UCF Unlike you, I see no reason to punish Scott for that. On the other hand, I'd rather work with Scott on the issues I disagree with than have Charlie who I know won't do anything in our best interest.
Isn't your strategy what got us Obama? Do you think by staying home you're really sending a message to the GOPe?
Refers not to the libertarian minded voter but rather to the so-called “Libertarian” candidates who exist only to help Dems get elected.
Conservative candidates need every vote they can get. Even Libertarians willing to vote for a constitutional conservative.
You Republicans are much like the citizens of Detroit.
After you shun all of the libertarians away, and shun all of the conservatives away, and shun all of the tea partiers away, you will be left with just yourselves. Of course, it will be someone else's fault.
Like those leftists, you believe the Republican party is too big to fail, and that libertarians, tea partiers, and conservatives owe you a bail out.
The next time you come to me with your hand out, I will have the same sympathy for you as I do the people of Detroit.
I voted for McCain and Romney. I hated myself for both votes. I'm not going to do that myself again. The people who "stayed home" were middle class voters that were not convinced that either McCain or Romney were worth voting for. The fault for that lies at the feet of both candidates.
I'm still undecided on Scott. And I don't "stay home" on election day. There are lots of other candidates outside of the Uniparty to vote for. If you don't like that, I'll be happy to find some rope for you to get started with.
I've been trying to tell these knuckle heads that forever. Instead of trying to make inroads by sticking to limited government ideals, they just reflexively insult Libertarians. Then complain that Libertarians didn't help their guy get elected.
They can't see that there are plenty of people like me who agree with the LP almost as often as we agree with the GOP. The difference being that the LP has yet to stab me in the back like the GOP has done so many times in the past.
BTW, I’ll bet in 2006 you were telling people how important is was to vote for Charlie Crist because Jim Davis might get elected.
I think your emotional response is understandable, but not well advised.
William Buckley, I think, made a reasonable case for voting for the “most conservative of the electable candidate”, or something like that.
I look at these guys, usually, on a straight line, and put them on “points” on that line.
During a primary, I vote for the person I consider furthest right from the center of the line.
I do the same in a general election.
I know this makes us susceptible to not voting for the perfect candidate.
I do that too, but I do not limit myself to only the candidates labeled "R" or "D".
as a genuine slimeball politican whore ...
He truly is. The fact cannot be emphasized strongly enough. Everybody in the state knows that this guy is nothing but an unprincipled political chameleon who will pander to ANY constituency, as long as it helps his election chances.
I can't believe Florida voters would elect this transparent charlatan to any office in the State, including dog-catcher.
To think that he could once again be our governor makes my skin crawl...
I choose from only the electable candidates.
It certainly worked to get Charlie Crist elected in 2006.
Like Charlie Crist?
yes. either crist or scott will be elected governor. no one else on the ballot has a chance. i will vote for the most conservative of the electable candidates.
