Kendrick Meek Is Still Running, Right?



Text  



Another poll puts Charlie Crist ahead in a three-way race for Senate from Florida, but I suspect Marco Rubio will catch up in this survey eventually, just as he caught up in Rasmussen’s. No, what’s jumping out at me now is the share that’s left for Democrat Kendrick Meek: 15 percent.

His share in the three preceding polls? 17 percent, 19 percent, and 18 percent. In this most recent poll, “the unaffiliated Crist is leading among Democratic voters, 38 percent to 33 percent.”

I tend to think some Florida Democrats will “come home” as the election approaches . . . Otherwise, this would be a strikingly bad performance for a major party in a swing state.
