This Is a Pretty Meek Result for Florida Democrats


By Rasmussen’s measure, Charlie Crist would lose the Florida Senate race in an independent bid; Rubio leads, 37 percent to 30 percent.

But that’s actually the second-most-surprising result of this poll. Could Democratic candidate Kendrick Meek really get only 22 percent in a major swing state’s Senate race?

Kendrick Meek’s 22 percent in today’s Rasmussen poll seems impossibly low, but he was at 29 percent in Mason-Dixon in March.
