‘Charlie Crist is off his game.’


Marco Rubio’s campaign notices this Miami Herald op-ed:

Charlie Crist is off his game. Way off his game, which was spectacular when it was good . . . Crist can still win the GOP Senate nomination without Cuban-American votes, but it will be very hard. Harder yet if he doesn’t win over, or win back, hard-core conservatives and mainstream Republicans who are gravitating toward Rubio. The latest poll shows them tied — tied! — at 43 percent in a race that was Crist’s to lose. Unless he straightens up, toughens up and smartens up, he will.

In NRO’s predictions symposium, “Rubio beats Crist” is pretty common . . .
