Crist Leads US Senate Race

June 9th, 2010 by flanews

Governor Charlie Crist is leading a three way race for US Senate and the oil disaster in the gulf is boosting his job approval ratings, that according to the latest Quinnipiac Poll. The polls show Crist leading the race with a 37 to 33 lead on Republican Marco Rubio, with Democratic challenger Kendrick Meek getting just 17 percent. Crists job approval rating is up eight points from the middle of last month to 57 percent. Quinnipiac Pollster Peter Brown says Crists leadership in the gulf oil spill disaster is increasing his popularity.

As governor he has a special ability to communicate with the media with issue that are governmental as opposed to political and this event, the oil spill, is one of those issues that allows him to fill that role, said Brown.

The poll also shows peoples appetite for offshore oil drilling waning. 51 percent of Florida voters now oppose offshore drilling with just 42 percent in favor.
