What Is Charlie Crist Up To?


Word is Charlie Crist is announcing something today. My guess is he’s pursuing his dream of being a Major League Baseball pitcher.

Quinnipiac tells us the Florida Senate race is unchanged:

In the Florida U.S. Senate race, Republican Marco Rubio is running away with a commanding  44 – 30 percent likely voter lead over Gov. Charlie Crist, running as an independent, with Democrat U.S. Rep. Kendrick Meek third with 22 percent, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today.

Today’s results are essentially unchanged from a September 30 poll by the independent Quinnipiac University, in which Rubio led Crist 46 – 33 percent with Meek getting 18 percent of likely voters.

Florida likely voters disapprove of President Barack Obama’s job performance 54 – 43  percent, a slight improvement from October 1 when they disapproved 56 – 40 percent.
