Rubio in dead heat with Crist!

Well, sort of.

From RealClearPolitics:

A new Mason-Dixon poll in Florida shows that Gov. Charlie Crist (R) continues to lead former House Speaker Marco Rubio in the U.S. Senate race. But Rubio is gaining in the polls as he becomes more familiar to state voters.

Republican Primary Election Matchup

Crist 51 (-2 from May)
Rubio 23 (+5)
Undecided 26 (-3)

In the May survey, 56 percent of Republican voters did not recognize Rubio. That number is down to 48 percent in the past month.

Among voters who recognize both candidates, the race is much closer: Crist leads with 33 percent, with Rubio at 31 percent and 36 percent undecided.

The bad news is that 48% of Republicans haven’t heard of Rubio. The good news is that there’s 13 months for that to change. November 2010 is still a long way off, and this poll has to be seen as a major positive for Rubio and his supporters.

If we’re going to take back this country, we’re going to do it with strong, principled Conservatives like Marco Rubio. Not flaky moderates RINO’s like Charlie Crist.

Rubio’s already got the endorsement of DeMint (a true Conservative) and Huckabee (eh), and now has the attention of the Club for Growth as well. If he continues to stick to and espouse Conservative principles, continues to perform well in media appearances, and stays away from Argentina (kidding, of course), he should continue to bring in more and more high-profile endorsements, and exponentially increase his name-recognition.

13 months, Rubio & Co…

Fight hard.

Rising Star.

Rising star.

  1. […] Marco Rubio tells it like it is, says not having support of GOP leadership “sucks” How can you not root for this guy? I keep holding onto hope for the fact that among those who have heard of both him and Crist, the race is a statistical dead heat. […]
