Gov. Charlie Crist leads a three-way matchup for the U.S. Senate in a new Quinnipiac University poll of Florida voters, while both of the top Republican contenders for governor lead likely Democratic nominee Alex Sink.Looks like Meek had slipped in the polls since the last time I looked at them. Crist's small lead over Rubio is pretty good, but in my opinion, the stronger he performs between now and election, the more votes Crist will siphon from Meek...
The poll also shows Floridians have soured on additional offshore oil drilling and disapprove of President Barack Obama's response to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.
In the marquee race this fall, the independent Crist leads with 37 percent of the vote, compared to 33 percent for Republican Marco Rubio and 17 percent for Democrat Kendrick Meek.
``Obviously there is a long time until November, but the governor is doing very well among independent voters,'' Peter Brown, assistant director for Quinnipiac's Polling Institute, said in a news release.
