Marco Rubio Expands Lead Over Charlie Crist to 29-Points in Latest Poll

A new Rasmussen Poll out of Florida shows GOP U.S. Senate Candidate Marco Rubio is destroying Florida GOP Gov. Charlie Crist in their battle for the GOP nomination. Rubio is now leading Crist 57%-28%, an amazing 29-point margin.
Support for Florida Governor Charlie Crist’s U.S. Senate bid has fallen this month to its lowest level yet. Just 28% of the state’s likely Republican voters support his candidacy now, down six points from March.

The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of likely GOP Primary voters in the Sunshine State shows former state House Speaker Marco Rubio edging up a point from last month to 57%, his highest level of support to date. Three percent (3%) like some other candidate in the race, and 12% are undecided.

Republican Primary voters see Rubio as a stronger candidate than Crist in the General Election. Eighty-one percent (81%) say Rubio would be at least Somewhat Likely to win if nominated while just 63% say the same of Crist. Those figures include 53% who say Rubio would be Very Likely to win and 30% who see Crist as Very Likely to win.  MORE

When Crist announced he was going to run, it was assumed by most he would be a shoe-in to win. But Rubio has changed all of that, and is distinguishing himself as an outstanding campaigner with a very strong conservative message.

One would think Crist will seriously consider dropping his bid in the face of numbers like this. An incumbent Governor should not be trailing by these margins if he has any real hope of victory.
