Crist Leads Senate Race

June 10th, 2009 by flanews

Governor Charlie Crist is the early favorite to win the Republican nomination for US Senate.

According to a Quinnipiac Poll released Wednesday, Crist has a huge lead over former Florida House Speaker Marco Rubio. Crists up 54 to 23 percent. Pollster Peter Brown said Rubio can still win, but hes got his work cut out for him.

Mr. Rubio would have to get every undecided voter and change the mind of a significant number of people who say they are for Governor Crist. Anything could happen in politics. Obviously Governor Crist is in a high profile job. If he were to do something that was very unpopular that could hurt his approval rating, said Brown.

Less than 20 percent of people polled knew enough about the Democratic candidates for Senate to form an opinion.
