Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Crist down by 32 to Rubio in today’s poll

Charlie Crist is going down faster than Ted Kennedy’s car at Chappaquiddick.  Details:

Rubio now leads Crist 60-28, including a staggering 71-17 lead with conservatives. Crist has a 49-36 advantage with party moderates, but they account for just 31% of likely primary voters compared to 65% who describe themselves as conservative.

Rubio is benefiting from a widely held sentiment among Florida GOP voters that Congressional Republicans are too liberal and that Crist would add to the problem. 41% of them think that the party leadership in Washington is too liberal, and with those folks Rubio holds an 83-10 lead. 50% think that Crist himself is too liberal and with those voters Rubio’s advantage expands even wider to 90-5.

It also looks like it’s too late for Crist to audible and make another run for Governor. GOP voters say they’d prefer likely nominee Bill McCollum over Crist by a 49-35 margin. In fact Republicans generally just want Crist to go away– 56% say they’d like him out of office a year from now to 19% who’d like to see him continue as Governor and only 14% who want him in the Senate.

Hard to believe that a guy with such big national aspirations is now a massive failure at the state level within his own party.  It wouldn’t surprise me if he were to pull a Specter and switch to the Dem side, or pull a Jeffords and switch to the Dem…er, “independent” side.  Not that it will make a difference one way or the other.

  1. Crist doesn’t help his situation with his childish attacks on Rubio about body waxing and such.

    It’s time to send our Ooompa Loompa governor down the bad egg chute.

  2. It would suprise me if Charlie Crist changes parties or goes independant. I think he’s a bigger man than that.
