Rubio Surging in Florida?
Marc Caputo reports on the rumors of a Chamber of Commerce-sponsored poll in Florida that shows Gov. Charlie Crist (R-Fla.) slipping below the 50 percent line in his primary with former state Speaker of the House Marco Rubio. The rumored poll numbers, which differ by only “one or two points” among Caputo’s sources: Crist 44, Rubio 30.
Give that Rubio has been up to 40 points behind Crist in other polls, and given that Crist’s sky-high approval numbers are falling with the bad Florida economy, this is a credible rumor that’s going to keep up national conservative interest in beating Crist.
